Notes:

This recipe can also be used with caribou ribs...Caribou or deer would not take quite as long to cook...

It is imperative to NOT add spices or salt & pepper as the recipe asks. You will NOT be eating the vegetables in the bottom of the pan, as they will be covered in moose fat, & mushy after cooking for 5 hours. I've had great success with pre-cooking ribs in the oven one day, then bbqing for company the next.
