I used the instructions here for the sauce only, and grilled the ribs on our charcoal grill. I used apple cider vinegar, cut the liquid smoke back to 3 tsp. (hubby said I could cut it back to 2 tsp.), and added 1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper. Amazing ribs! Hubby tasted the sauce "raw", before simmering, and thought it was going to be too sweet. In the end, it all balances out perfectly. Will be using this sauce for ribs again! Thank you for sharing.

Great ribs, good directions. I baked them and followed the rest of recipe exactly. Nice and tender, very flavorful, my family loved them. Thanks BeachGirl!

Yummy! Just finished eating with my husband, it's a shame my 7month daughter couldn't try some of the ribs...someday I guess. I love cooking and am grateful for this recipe, I will add it to my cookbook.

Wow!!! We just tried these ribs and I have never tasted any better. Did'nt have enough though, that was the only problem. Perhaps a bit more smoke for us the next time--which won't be long. Thank you so much. Gord

DAMN! Best homemade bar.b.q sauce ever! ?only thing I changed; I?m not a big fan of cornstarch as a thickener ?so in addition to the recipes ingredients, I added a 6 oz can of ?Contadina? tomato paste w/roasted garlic and the flavor & consistency was perfect! Couldn?t stop tasting the sauce off the spoon, still haven?t had it on the ribs yet?

This is an excellent recipe! I did substitute honey in place of molasses and hickory chips in foil on the grill in place of liquid smoke. FABULOUS RAVES FROM FAMILY. WILL BE MY GO TO RIB RECIPE ! Thank you beach girl...

Without a doubt the best homemade rib sauce ever. I'll never use bottled barbecue sauce again.

These were excellent! Fall off the bone tender and a great sauce-first one I've made that he raved about (he likes sweet and I like vinegar/spicy) and perfect for ribs.<br/>Really easy too
