Tony Roma's Carolina Honey BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by QueenJellyBean

This is a wonderful honey bbq sauce that we brush on pork spare ribs the last 15 minutes of cooking. It is a copycat recipe for the Tony Roma's restaurant sauce. Makes enough for 4 pounds of ribs. I was given this recipe by a friend was contacted by that it is their recipe.

The most disgusting bbq sauce I have ever tasted. Do not waste your time. Tastes like vinegar and it made the house smell like it too. Nasty. Waste of $15 ribs and 4 hours of them cooking in the oven.
