“I found this recipe years ago in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine. The crab and shrimp boil wasn't part of it but after a trip to New Orleans I threw some in the pot with the ribs and loved the result. The sauce is deceptively sweet and then the spice in the meat hits your taste buds. Yum. I've substituted other coffee liqours for the Kahula and other BBQ sauce for the Kraft and it always turned out well. It's such a simple recipe but so tasty.”
