"Maple and orange are the flavors that accent this sweet and tangy sauce," says Barb Loftin of Florence, Kentucky. "My husband and I think it's the best barbecue sauce we've ever tasted. I gave it this name because we live near the Ohio River and love to watch the riverboats go by. The sauce is especially good on ribs or pork chops."
