BBQ Ribs - a Little Sweet, a Little Tangy

"We love BBQ ribs, especially homemade. I took a copycat recipe and made some changes that gives the sauce a sweet tangy flavor. I always make extra sauce so I can keep pouring over the ribs as they are roasting."

    I made these for our superbowl party and they were a huge hit. I will never buy prepackaged ribs again!!! I also made up some of the bbq sauce for little smokies in the crockpot. Fabulous as well. Great recipe

    I agree - these ribs are awesome! The ingredients complimented and made for a wonderful sauce. Other then having to sub the liquid smoke with a couple tablespoons of Hickory BBQ sauce I made as posted and we too were sampling before they got to the table! The aroma alone worth a five- the taste absolutely delicious.

    Dee,these ribs were AWESOME...The sauce had the right amount of "tang" and was simply delicious...I browned them up under the broiler like you suggested and the kids started to devour them before I could even get them to the table *lol* I guess the smell was just too much for them.....Thanks for a great recipe,Dee!!

Time does not permit many hours in the kitchen anymore, but I still like to entertain when possible and I am always searching for the latest greatest new recipe to add to my tried and true collection.</p>
