Dave’s Red Barbecue Sauce and Sticky Baby Back Rib Recipe

Dave’s Barbecue Sauce and Sticky Baby Back Ribs

Dave enjoys grilling and smoking, and these ribs are one of our favorites of his creations.

Rib Rub:
Fresh sage, ground with mortar and pestle
Salt and pepper to taste

Basting Sauce:

2/3 cup water
1/3 cup cider vinegar

Barbecue Sauce:
1 cup catsup
1 cup water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
¾ cup French’s yellow mustard
½ cup brown sugar
1 cup honey
1-3 tsp Louisiana hot sauce

Combine all ingredients for barbecue sauce. Heat and simmer for 1 hour. Cool and then chill and refrigerate.

Dry rub ribs and marinate over night
Depending on the configuration of your grill or smoker – keep a large bowl of beer in the steamer to keep the ribs moist. Baste periodically with basting sauce.
When the ribs are fully cooked or smoked – smother in barbecue sauce and wrap tightly in aluminum foil and let sit for 2-3 hours in an oven set to low.
Prior to serving – just touch off on the grill.
