“Better than Moms. . . I came up with this recipe from a combination of sources. A little of this and a little of that. My husband really likes ribs and said this sauce was better than his moms(the best he'd ever had). I hope you enjoy it as much as we have. PS- I cook on a what smells, tastes and looks good philosophy- so add as much or little as your taste buds would like, this is only a guideline to a great sauce.”
