hot pepper sauce
fresh lime juice
1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger
I was a little skeptical, but this turned out fantastic. However, because others found it too sweet & thin, I omitted the brown sugar & used only 3/4 cup honey, and changed the tomato sauce to 3/4 cup tomato paste & 1/4 cup tomato sauce. I also made the coffee extra-strong & used only 1/2 cup. This made the sauce a perfect consistency, and it was still quite sweet. Try it!
Did not find sauce thick enough. Was way too sweet for barbeque for me. Will not try again.
i like it!!!
I omitted the bourbon because i had none on hand and added onion and garlic. Iprecooked my ribs for a couple of hours in the oven then basted them on the bbq. This was quite possibly the best rib recipe ever, its our new favourite.
Could possibly be the best sauce I ever had!!

Terrific recipem and of course, for those with concernes of the young ones and alcohol, let me assure you that all the alcohol is gone from the cooking process, and this recipe is a true winner. Might one suggest one step further? Use several pieces of sage banded together to apply this very tasty and quite likeable sauce. It adds to the flavour and its quite eye-catching to your guests to see you use this method of applique.
The end result was great. I used this on chicken and it was delicious. Thanks!
Absolutely love this sauce, will use again. I just upped the lime a little, and squeezed 2 oranges on the ribs when I pulled them off the grill.
