I made these last night for dinner with a few changes listed below...we gobbled them up. They were outstanding! 1) Used about 2.5 #'s of baby back ribs since I was just cooking for 2, still had leftovers & plenty of sauce for a 2nd batch. (2) Cooked them in the oven for over 2.5 hours total at 300 degrees, next time I will tent them with foil over this part. (3) I rubbed them with my Spicy Chipotle BBQ spice rub (recipe to be posted soon) instead of the salt in the 1st step, & cooked them for an hour with just the dry rub. This caused the ribs to have a great smokey-heat to counterbalance the great smokey-sweet of the bbq sauce--I then basted & flipped the ribs every 20 minutes from that point out. (4) I finished the ribs under a low broil to get a little char flavor in the final few minutes. Beautiful! I'll take pictures of my next batch & post them. Thank you for sharing this sauce recipe!
