Calgary Stampede Ribs Recipe

Calgary Stampede Ribs Recipe

"More, please!" is what I hear when I serve these zippy, finger-licking ribs to family or guests. The first time my husband and I tried them, we pronounced them "the best ever." The recipe has its roots in the Calgary Stampede, an annual Western and agricultural fair and exhibition in our province. -Marian Misik, Sherwood Park, Alberta
