"I use this sauce on ribs and then slow-cook 'em on the smoker. A guaranteed hit for any gathering; this sauce is my absolute favorite! May use immediately or keep in an air-tight container in a refrigerator up to several weeks. Brush sauce on ribs as ribs are finishing."

Use this last night on ribs. It was good & SPICY! For me this recipe is for basting the ribs while they are on the grill not for putting on your plate and dunking ribs after they've been grilled...

Didn't have cider vinegar, so used a mix of white, balsamic, and cooking wine. Still turned out delicious
