Fantastic! These were wonderful and we'll definitely make them again although perhaps instead of marinating them I'll just toss them in the crockpot for 4-6 hours.. Made them with Paula Deen's Potato Bacon salad and it was fantastic! Thanks for posting.
I usually boil my ribs in beer and spices, and then put them on the grill to finish them. So this was new to me, to grill to completion! My hubby and I both loved the ribs, they were so tender! My bbq kept a temo of about 400*, and I basted the ribs towards the end with the bbq sauce. I loved the sauce! I scaled it down for just teh 2 of us. Didn't have ginger or garlic poweder...just used garlic. Everything else was the same. The sauce was aswesom, going to make some for some chick too! Thanks
Love this marinade/barbecue sauce! Fruity, spicy, and interesting! (Well, actually, I left out the horseradish because I'm not fond of it - and it was even good without it!) Grilled them on the barbecue just as you suggested...mmmmm! Thanks.
