THE Ribs

Brandi Kirkpatrick


This is a recipe that combines some of my brothers rib recipe and some of a teachers. Make sure you cook it for the full time, it makes the meat so tender that is literally falls apart. Also, wonderful for BBQ sandwiches. Just add a little coleslaw mix and you are good to go. Can be made in a crockpot as well.
