Fabulous ribs! I looked up the conversion from C to F and got I started at 305. After an hour and a half my ribs were not tender so I turned my oven up to 325. 30 minutes later they were perfect. The barbecue sauce is delicious, and I wish I had doubled the recipe and put half on the stove to let it thicken and serve with the ribs. This is a perfect "inside" rib recipe. I'll be making this one again. Thanks for sharing Pat!!
