I am doing some ribs for the 4th tomorrow.  I'm very confident in my ribs but I am looking for suggestions for a BBQ sauce.  I was thinking of setting up a drip pan and using the drippings for the sauce.  What kind of sauce do yall use.



  • Ribs, oh the possibilities, but I use a sweet BBQ sauce like Sweet Baby Rays.  I found that to be good on ribs. I’m not good at making a BBQ sauce I like so until I master that I will use SBR. We also have a local BBQ sauce in Aberdeen SD called “OL’ West” that is great on almost anything. See URL   You can order it from the site - trust me its good!

    I keep it simple 
    1 cup catsup
    3/4 cup wine vinegar
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp guldens mustard 
    1 tsp wochestire sauce 
    dash of salt pepper tabasco 
    1 garlic clove minced

  • I got a classic Carolina style BBQ sauce you can try.

    1 1/2 cup cider vinegar

    1/2 cup ketchup

    1/2 cup water

    1 tablespoon sugar white or brown

    1 teaspoon salt Kosher fine

    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

    Mix all together, place in an airtight container and put it in the refrigerator over night so the flavors blend and there you go.

    This is a thin BBQ sauce but it goes good with smoked poke of any kind.  You can also play with it and see how you can improve it.  Good luck.

    This one sounds good, haven't tried it though, and I like the name of the website....
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    I make a smoked porter sauce that's pretty darn good. Of course, I use my own homebrewed smoked porter, but hey...I brew beer! I also put some real NH maple syrup in it too.

    Google  smoked porter bbq sauce recipe, you should get a good idea of where to start.

    I have also made a rasberry chipoltle sauce thats pretty good too. Google Chef Juke's Raspberry Chipotle sauce.

    Lots of good sauce recipes out there.....start with one and change it to suite your tastes.
