    I would boil them first next time. They weren't as tender as I would expect after several hours of cooking. Other than that, the flavor was good.

    Very tasty, I think I will add a little liquid smoke to this recipe next time!

    Mine just came out of the oven - the smell was heavenly. I added additional spices because I am not a sugar eater. The broil is essential to get the look and it tastes fabulous! Thanks!

    Turned out great. Did 265 for 3 hours because I didn’t have enough time and still was tender. Only change was putting the ribs back under the broiler after applying the bbq sauce for 2 minutes.

    I was turned off by beef ribs, years ago, after a restaurant clearly boiled them first. They just tasted like boiled beef. This recipe has restored my faith in beef ribs!

    I used a premix spice rub, but followed the timings and how to cook the ribs. Ribs were amazingingly tender.

    The spice rub makes a great flavor! Will use again. YES fall off bone GOOD. Changes: Did not marinade and doubled recipe. I put enough beer (tall beer can 24oz?) in the bottom of my roast pan to cover the bottom of it, (kept meat side up) and used the matching lid in lieu of wrapping meat in foil. I rotated ribs once and added more rub on meat (used 2 racks ribs so stacked in pan). I put baked beans in oven last hour or so of rib baking time. When beans done, put beans on stove to keep warm. Took ribs out of oven and transferred onto broil pan, sprinkled more rub on ribs and brushed with bbq sauce then returned to oven on bottom rack while my corn bread baked on upper rack. The sauce got thick and gooey and meat brown YUM. Cut up salad and watermelon for perfect rib dinner!!
    My family and I are so excited about this app and all it has to offer thank you

    Meat was definitely falling of the bone! Worth the wait on that long, slow cooking time. The family enjoyed it a lot! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

    These are by far THE BEST ribs that I have ever made! My family lived them! I’m so glad that I tripled the recipe for my family of 6.
    Anne Denure 3 years ago
    They were delicious! Not exactly fall off the bone but I only cooked them for 3.5 hours @275°F, next time I’ll cook them for 4 hours. I doubled the rub for 13 ribs with an extra TBS of brown sugar, no bbq at the end, but oh man were they GOOD!

    It look not too bad. I love the fat - so juicy. One thing I can’t figure out though. The ribs in the recipe’s picture seem dry, But mine end up with lots of juice in the foil. Don’t know why...

    After taking them out from the broil, the spreading of b-que sauce and hitting them again on broil ..... Omg so good!

    Really good! Next time I will add a little more salt to the rub mixture.
