  13. Hi, I found your site and I’ve been drooling over so many of these recipes. this one caught my eye as a potential for next weeks game. A question? Are you braising these on the stove top or in the oven.. If so at what temp????? It just says “cook for 8 hours”….??????

  14. 1 more quick question…do you cut the ribs apart to sear and cook or keep the whole rack together?
