I use this sauce on ribs and then slow-cook 'em on the smoker. A guaranteed hit for any gathering; this sauce is my absolute favorite! May use immediately or keep in an air-tight container in a refrigerator up to several weeks. Brush sauce on ribs as ribs are finishing.

Use this last night on ribs. It was good & SPICY! For me this recipe is for basting the ribs while they are on the grill not for putting on your plate and dunking ribs after they've been grilled... Read More

Excellent super easy sauce. I used Sriracha for my hot sauce. My Missus thought it was extremely spicy and I thought it was just right. On its own without being on the ribs it was smokin' spicy. Read More

I modified the recipe because I did not need two cups. I used one cup for everything and 1/4 cup for the molasses. I still modified further to get it to the taste I wanted. I also added a little cornstarch to thicken. Other than that it was an easy recipe and everyone liked the meatballs I put in the sauce. It was a great hit. Read More
