Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good meal This made a wonderful meal. Almost everyone loved it. Except one person thought it was overcooked, but they loved the flavor. I think they were just being picky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharon I soak my ribs in Dales Seasoning for at least 30 minutes then put on the rest of the ingredients. Grill 10 minutes each side then put in oven for 3 to 4 hours. Ribs fall off bone and everyone raves over them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ingredients Don’t Match Directions How much garlic salt and lemon pepper should be used? Those ingredients are not in the list, but they are in the directions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cooking for me Since I would be Cooking for me and I don't like "really spicy" I would cut out the hot pepper sauce and the paprika. I would also think about substituting apple sauce instead of the molasses. But all other ingredients the being the same would be good to me!
