"When my youngest grandson wanted ribs for his birthday, I tried these. Everyone loved them. A big key is to not get the heat too high. You need a lower temperature to get them nice and tender without charring them. This rib recipe is going to be seen again and again this summer grilling season."

"This did not work for us. The marinade burned the meat. Needs to be grilled over indirect heat."
