    amazzzing! I lived in Eastern NC for 5 years and the Carolina BBQ was the only thing I can say I liked about the whole experience. If you've ever had their BBQ and liked it, this will not disappoint. Cooked on a gas grill with pecan chips... ( also very NC ) and these were probably the best ribs I've ever made. Recipe saved!

    My boys loved the sauce on this! I used riblets instead of country style ribs. was good, but i imagine the marinade would be even better with meatier ribs.
