Dizzy Pig rub and sauce match for ribs

I'm going to smoke some spares with Nature Boy's all purpose rub. What would be a nice BBQ sauce that would pair with it? Can you post the recipie as well? I feel like I'm matching food and wine but his rub is that good![p]Thanks,

    BobM,[p]I always reach for the Bone Suckin Sauce found most everywhere these days. It is hard to beat.[p]

    Actually that all purpose dust is Mike (Qfan's) creation, but all the same thanks for the comments! Much appreciated. [p]What style of sauce do you like? We are still playing with sauce recipes, and have not settled on a winner yet, but for a nice treat, try the Blues Hog sauce (you can find it at Head Country is good also, and even a simple easy to find sauce like Sweet Baby Rays goes real nice on Dizzy Dusted ribs.[p]Look forward to seeing the other responses here.

  • BobM,
    I always make my own. I had the same idea the other day about 'pairing' the sauce to the rub, so I simply added a little Dizzy Dust into my sauce recipe. [p]I sweat a small onion and two cloves of garlic in about a tsp of Veg. Oil, add about a 1/2 cup of brown sugar, tsp lemon juice, about 1/2 cup of R.Wine Vinegar, 1/3 cup Worchestershire, and enough ketchup to get consistency I want. Usually I overshoot the ketchup, so I cut it with more vinegar and sometimes more lemon juice. Taste it as you go and shake in the dizzy dust to taste at the end. Don't boil it either, just heat it to bring together and remove from heat. Good stuff if you want red sauce.[p]Good Luck,

  • Dr_Redwine,
    BTW, the onion and garlic are finely minced first....
