A great complement to the ribs, Member rmp236

I found this on the internet whilst looking for something different for a barbecue sauce. I marinated the ribs in the sauce for about 4 hours, then placed the ribs and the sauce in a covered casserole dish. I then crossed my fingers. It was great with a good balance between sweetness, acidity and spice. I will definitely use it again. It was not difficult to make and there were no unusual ingredients. (Do you have a cupboard full of ingredients you have used once, and now they sit there?)
