Made this last night. I also followed southerngents sauce additions with a couple of twists of my own. No onion or garlic powder. I sauteed 1/4 of a large onion and 2 cloves of garlic until soft then added the remaining ingredients to the sauce but upped the Frank's hot sauce to 1 1/2 tsp. I didn't brine and cooked everything at the 350 temp. I used about 2/3 of the sauce and covered for the 2nd part of the cooking. I simmered the remaining sauce to reduce by half. Basted the reduced sauce on for the last open half hour, then finished with a broil until lightly charred. OMG these were absolutely delicious!

I found this recipe because I have been searching for years for the perfect Country Rib recipe! At last!! I did, however, make the changes recommended by “southern gent” because my family prefers a little more spice! Thank you for a great recipe!!

Made these again yesterday after forgetting about the recipe for a while - so glad I uncovered it again. The smell as they bake is so enticing, and the flavor is great. With or without brown sugar is a personal preference- we like them both ways - otherwise I make as printed. The best part for me? It's a super easy recipe with great results!

These are excellent - so tender! I did make a few additions - brown sugar, chipotle chili pepper and liquid smoke (and I forgot to add the hot pepper sauce).

The meat came out fantastic, I agree that the last step of cooking for 30 minutes was not needed, However, the sauce recipe however is bland even when I added the brown sugar. I ended up pouring bottled sauce on the ribs 15 minutes before I took them out of the oven.

Make again as often as possible. Loved by all!

On board for this week. Cutting back on chili powder, also leaving out hot pepper sauce since not a fan.

I wish I had read the reviews and added the brown sugar. They were just ok to us following the original recipe.

I made these last night. I followed the recipe but did add 1/3 cup of brown sugar like others suggested . They were done after the 1 and a half hours covered, but I did take the top off and cook them about 15 min more just to make sure. This recipe is a winner for sure. They were tender, and delicious ! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe.
