      I used regular pork ribs and they were delicious. I do not like ribs with a lot of barbecue sauce and this recipe was perfect - very tasty and tender!

      Cooked this one last night and followed directions to a tee! No deviations from the recipe. Fully enjoyed it, served with a side of Fries, and they were devoured. I will suggest that for some people this might be a bit to sweet for their liking, that's why only 4 stars. Going to try it again, but instead of 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar, use 1.5, and replace the remaining half with dry mustard. Just a suggestion for others to consider. Enjoy!
