    Used different ingredients. I omitted the alcohol because i had none on hand and added onion and garlic. I precooked my ribs for a couple of hours in the oven then basted them on the bbq. This was quite possibly the best rib recipe ever, its our new favourite.  -  08 Oct 2008


    This recipe is a true find. Might one suggest one step further? Use several pieces of sage banded together to apply this very tasty and quite likeable sauce. It adds to the flavour and its quite eye-catching to your guests to see you use this method of applique. Cheers! CM  -  08 Oct 2008
