    I already had the ribs in the oven and realized I didn't have the chili sauce or any tomato sauce to try to substitute. So I made do with 1/2 cup of McCormick's Grill Mates Smoky Montreal steak sauce, 1/2 cup of kethcup, a little brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice and ground cloves in place of the 1 cup chili sauce. The whole family really enjoyed these!

    My family loved this recipe. I also loved how easy it was and that the ribs were so tender. Leftovers made great pulled pork sandwiches. Note...the recipe header indicates that baking time is 1-1/2 hours; the total baking time is actually 2+ hours.
