My family has always used this finger lickin' good recipe and so far everybody who eats our ribs LOVES them. We do add beer, cayenne pepper, paprika, and whatever else we feel like that day. We have always made them while we are camping, in a Dutch oven with charcoal. They are tender and delicious. It seems, the people who are giving this the worst ratings are the ones who have't tried it. Yes, if you do have more time to let it cook longer go for it, but don't worry about having them in liquids. You can see that even with the unnecessarily poor ratings it is still a good recipe to try. ENJOY!
