I have been looking for this recipe and I couldn´t find it for some reasons. Anyways, I boiled my ribs first for about 30mins and cool for another mins. then I marinate with the sauce overnight. It's so soft and delish. Thank you.

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.
