They were very tender but did not taste the root beer.

The ribs turned out fantastic! They were so very moist and tender with no root beer taste at all (which I was a little concerned about). There are only two of us so I "pulled" the leftover pork off of the bones and used it as a topper for baked potatoes later in the week. Very, very easy and yummy.

Sauce had very little flavor. Ended up dipping it in barbeque sauce out of a bottle.

I didn't let the sauce thicken enough, but they were still really good. I would double the spices next time.
