This is really an interesting recipe. I doubled all the sauce ingredients with the exception of the broth. I used only 6-8 ounces of broth and eliminated the water completely. I used Sweet Baby Ray's regular sauce - not the honey - and I did use more of that, probably an additional 1/3 cup on top of the doubled amount. Still, the sauce is runny - it's just a result of the slow cooker method. If you're looking for a traditional thick, sticky rib sauce you really need to use a different technique. With this process, if you want it thicker, you have to do something with cornstarch or another thickener after the cooking process is done. I actually didn't mind the runny-ness. The flavor is great (although a little too sweet for us so will reduce the honey and maple syrup amounts next time) and the sauce is perfect for flavoring the rice or potato or noodle that you serve with it. I used buffalo ribs so didn't have any problem with greasiness at all. And, since I put these in before work and then left for the day, I cooked them on low. Tender and flavorful and an easy and quick meal to put on the table.
