Dang...these are the best ribs you will ever want! Yum, Yum, Yummy! Had to make a double batch so my son and friends could take some home. Sweet corn bread and down home baked beans make this the best summer time meal you could ever want to eat!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What a simple and delicious recipe! The Kitchen Crew and I particularly liked the sweetness of the rub - paired with a spicy barbecue sauce it's simply scrumptious. We prepared these totally in the oven, but I can't wait to try them on the grill too!
