    I have made this recipe many times. I cook it at an even lower temp than the recipe requires for a longer period of time. It's a winner! Going to try the crockpot idea tonight, thanks for the idea!
    I cooked them in the crock pot to save time and the last hour added more bbq sauce and they turned out delicious. My 3 year old nephew even loved them and asked for seconds (which never happens!
    delicious. 
    loved it. 1st time making it and i had to double the recipe. everyone loved it. i even took some to my sisters' she and her husband said, "the only thing missing was........more"
    I don't know if using country style ribs was the problem but the sauce was soupy and the ribs after 2 hrs were still not done, I will never ever make this again, horrible!
    I've always smoked my ribs slowly basting and turning ever 1/2 hour in a smoker in my backyard - I made this recipe and now wonder why I wasted all that time. These ribs were such a hit with my college age son and his friends that I now have to quadruple the recipe every time I make it. The only change I made was after I parboiled I did a dry Jamacian style rub and then I also basted the ribs a few times during cooking. So easy and so delicious.
    This was the first time I made spare ribs, they turned out perfect. The recipe was easy to follow. I also rubbed Paula Dean's season salt on the night before. Everyone at dinner loved them. With the leftovers I put them in a crock pot with Sweet Baby Ray's and they turn out even better the next day. Recommend this recipe to anyone.
    I wanted to find a BBQ recipe that tasted like the real deal without having an all day prep and this is it. This recipe goes together quickly & easily. It has quickly become a favorite in our house. As recommended by another reviewer, I let it par boil 15-20 minutes and bake about 2hrs. I also double the recipe for the sauce so there is plenty for dipping once the ribs are served. For a more authentic flavor I also add a little liquid smoke to the sauce. The outcome is very pleasing.
    I used beef country style ribs instead of the pork and followed the recipe as written. The beef came out so tender that it was easy to cut with a fork!! My daughter, who is a very picky BBQ eater, said that this was the best yet!! She's planning on shredding the left overs for BBQ sandwiches tomorrow!
    I love this recipe. It was my first time making spare ribs so I was looking for one that wouldn't be too complicated and I found this one. If I wouldn't have been in a rush I they would have come out even better. Thanks!!!
    My best advice would be to cook them longer in the par boil AND in the next step...I cheated and used Masterpiece BBQ sauce, one of our favorites..Anyway, we had leftovers the next day and cooked them some more and then--they were really good....
    although I added lots of other ingredients, this recipe is still my favorite basic for ribs.
    Very easy way to make ribs that come out tender and juicy.
