Recipe by Patti McD

Though techincally not barbecued by today's standards, these ribs were the best in the world. Today I will often use country style ribs and the sauce works as wel on chicken if you do not eat pork. My father always liked this sauce because it was not sweet like many sauces. He felt sweet was for dessert. I will double or triple the sauce to make them extra juicy.
