“My friend Sue gave me this recipe. It's her hubby Tim's favorite way to prepare ribs. He likes to sear the juices in, and crisp them up well on the bbq, then finish them off in oven. This results in a very succulent, mouthwatering bbq. He likes em sweet and spicey! Keep in mind you can adjust the spices to your liking. Lip Smackin Good! Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you, most of the stuff you probably already have in your kitchen. Worth the time spent to make, I guarantee that!”
