We generally cook them to what’s considered competition style where they are tender and juicy but not quite fall off of the bone tender. For this recipe we stuck it out another 30 minutes until these ribs were fall apart tender. The results were a big hit and the tangy mustard glaze added great flavor to the smoky pork ribs.
