Thank you for a great tasting BBQ sauce, but I did change just one thing, I used just 1 tblsp. of the chili powder instead of 2, hubby can't take too much heat! He loved it, so this will be used quite a bit this summer not only on the spareribs, but chicken too!

The sauce for this recipe is pretty good, but the tomato taste was a bit strong and had me thinking pasta instead of ribs at times. I used baby back ribs cooked on the grill using low (~200degrees) indirect heat for a little over two hours.
