A favorite of mine the base starts with 1/2 cup any kind of bottled bbq sauce, this is nice with oven baked ribs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a sauce pan over medium heat mix all ingredients together, just until well blended and honey and molasses are melted. Do not boil.
  2. This will make enough bbq sauce for about 3 racks of ribs. In a covered roasting pan, pour bbq sauce over ribs and bake at 200 degrees for about 3-4 hours, basting and turning often.

This is simply an amazing sauce! I set a bit aside because I had planned to brush it on the ribs and finish them on the grill, and when my DS dipped his finger in he said "AWESOME!" I didn't get to put them on the grill because my 2 DS's wanted them falling off the bone tender. So I followed your directions for cooking the ribs and they were exactly that...falling off the bone. We brushed the extra sauce on the ribs once they were on our plates and that gave them an extra hit of flavour. I used my favourite barbecue sauce, Bull's Eye Original, I loved the smokiness it gave the sauce. I won't change anything next time, this recipe is perfect as is. Thank you, Calee!

Actually, I've decided that some sauce just isn't worth saving--I bought a large bottle of Cattleman's sauce at Costco and never opened it. I thought before I toss the whole thing I'd give this recipe a try. Their is actually a very low percentage of the original sauce in the final product. A nice sweet sauce for sticky, yummy ribs. My husband cooked them on the smoker and then brushed this over for the last few minutes.
