The secret is in the sauce. This recipe is posted on another web site and I made some minor adjustments for personal taste. Use this sauce for Memphis Style Baby Back Ribs.

It tastes pretty vinegary. Add 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup of bourbon. Now we're talking.

Very tasty sauce. Not too hot, but tangy. There are a lot of good inexpensive commercial sauces out there but this was different, and I made it myself which is cool. Glad I made it and will again.
