I'm not one to usually eat ribs, but when I saw a small, meaty pack of ribs at the store, I had to try them. Absolutely, delicious.

It says to add sauce later or else you will have a watery mess, but in the recipe it says to add it with ribs in crockpot?

Is the sauce still secret? How about the recipe or is it store bought?

I have one other rib recipe that uses whiskey which is almost on par with this one...almost. I don't tweak this at all but I really don't like fatty ribs...kind of ruins the experience so, in order to thoroughly enjoy this recipe, I take about half an hour and pull all the fat I can, as well as silver skin off the meat and bones...then proceed. Stunning!

My favorite BBQ sauce. I am not into overly spicy or smoke flavor sauces. My son said best sauce I have made.
