"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."

"Lost the original magazine recipe and glad I found it on-line. This is our favorite home made BBQ sauce. We omitted the pepper sauce, as we have a low "heat" tolerance."
