    This recipe was SO good! My only edit is that I cooked the ribs on low for only 7 hours and they were too dry; I’ll just cook them for 6 next time to see if that helps. The flavor was wonderful though and the sauce….I wanted to put it on everything:)

    The flavors and sauce are delicious! I cooked for 5 hours on low and they still came out a bit dry. Otherwise wonderful recipe!
