    Excellent Ribs! Followed instructions exactly,cooked indirectly with a firebox. Great results and not overly difficult. Will definitely prepare again soon.

    I used this recipe in a Big Green Egg (indirect with plate-setter) this last weekend - first time without using my traditional mustard and rub, but my wife said the fruit juices had enzymes to tenderize similar to the mustard. I had 3 "full" slabs from Sams, and tripled all ingredients. I did add garlic-infused olive oil with the rub however. The entire family said these were the best ribs ever - and I've done a lot of them!

    Although they do take awhile to prepare, they are fairly easy to make and are the best ribs I've ever had! My family and I couldn't get enough of them. You might want to double the dry rub recipe though because unless your ribs are exactly 2lbs each you aren't going to have enough rub.

    Made these yesterday following recipe exactly and they were good. But nothing exceptional over any other ribs I've made--and I make ribs quite often. With the liquid in the foil part of the cooking process I think they did cook faster than they do without it. I like to try new recipes a lot and with all the great comments on this one, I had hoped it was exceptional. I love ribs and these were as good as others but when you put sauce on them before serving it masks most recipe differences. I find that the quality of the meat makes more of a difference than the recipe--but then I use recipes that are quite similar.
