These are my favorite. Yes, my stomach is growling now.

Should your 5 ingredient Rib rub recipe not read 1 packed CUP Brown Sugar vice Tbsp? Impossible these ingredients, as listed, would cover 4 racks of ribs. not even 1 rack. All you would taste is the chili and cinnamon. Thank you. Great ideas here!

These are country ribs, not racks of ribs. The measurements are correct.

These look delicious, Donna John ! I love your pictures. You make it look easy! #yum
It looks delicious, I have discovered. I am beginning to take care of my health and have I started using airfryers what do you think? They serve very well for cooking with less oil.
