My Experience:

Not my favorite rib recipe so far but a close second (the one with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce is our favorite). My only complaint is that the meat was not “fall off the bone” tender.

I used Diana’s Honey Garlic BBQ sauce for the BBQ (Diana’s has been on sale lately so I stocked up). You can of course use your favorite BBQ sauce. Instead of serving the BBQ sauce on the side for dipping, I just covered the ribs in the extra sauce for some finger licking goodness.

I served these ribs with Foil Potatoes, creamed corn and biscuits. Do you think I gave my boyfriend too much food? The corn didn’t even fit…
