You'll need extra dinner napkins when you serve these tender ribs because they're so finger-lickin' good. The thick and tangy sauce has bits of celery and onion as well as a cayenne pepper kick. The ribs are perfect for summer picnics. -Nancy Horsburgh, Everett, Ontario

"Pretty good sparerib recipe. I really liked the sauce because it was not super sweet. Will be making these again."

"My husband doesn't care for commercial BBQ sauce at all.. Avoids it completely! And doesn't much care for homemade that's sweet. But the sauce for these ribs is worth every minute it takes to prepare it!!! It's chunky texture and tangy,zesty flavor is awesome!! I use the sauce recipe often for other things like chicken pork and even sausage dogs!! Yummy"
