    CONCHOBOR99's Note:

    BEGIN with the sauce recipe several hours before you plan serving. The first steps are making a BBQ sauce. It takes some time to thicken. This is the only way to make ribs without a grill. The sauce recipe delivers a sweet-sour tang with a little bite from the vinegar. The ribs always turn out "fallin' off the bone" tender. Do not be afraid of the amount of ingredients in this recipe. The BBQ sauce can be used on anything. (For an easier time, use a commercial sauce.) After some reviews I have read, I need to revise my recipe. Boiling or simmering the sauce helps to draw flavor by allowing it to thicken or cook off the liquid leaving a condensed sauce. This is called "reducing." You are literally making your own BBQ sauce.

      The sauce was good but too sweet for us. I followed the recipe and wish now I hadn't added all the water because the sauce was too thin, as another reviewer stated. Guess I should have taken their advice!

      Yummy! These were very good for oven baked ribs. The meat came out very tender and the flavor of the sauce was really good. I just wonder what the 1 1/2 cups of water was for? I didn't use it, and if I had added it to the sauce the sauce would have been ruined, and never would have thickened up in the time stated. I think the recipe would be better if the water were removed. Thank you for posting!
