“These ribs are perfection! First, they have NO bones, they are SO tender, and SO delicious! I change it up once and awhile with different colas, like Dr. Pepper, and different BBQ sauces, but sweeter variations work best, like apple butter, honey, raspberry chipolte, etc. We don't have a long BBQ season where I live but even from the oven these are the best ribs!”
