"Use this sauce on ribs, chicken, pork chops, seafood... Heck, just about anything! It promises to give you the ULTIMATE in flavor. I used this sauce on ribs, and they are absolutely to die for, and the BEST ribs I have ever had the pleasure of making and eating... This recipe is heaven sent, especially for us rib lovers, using 3 racks of baby back ribs! I double the sauce, and use every last bit. Any sauce that may be left over after basting, you can spoon on ribs right before serving. Definitely one not to be missed!"

Amazing tasting ribs and my customers loved them so much! So tender and juicy. I have used St Louis and baby backs, and both were great. Next I will try with chicken and wings.

This is easy to prepare . I made 2 batches to use with both baby backs and chicken for Labor day. OMG is this sauce amazing!! I couldn't make up my mind which I liked better, the ribs or the chicken. Both were lip smacking good, and so worth the sticky fingers. This is a keeper!!
