I made these yesterday. It is great to be back in the States for this awesome weekend. I am happy to be back eggin'.

Three racks, one with Arthur Bryant's sauce and rub, one with Gates sauce and rub, and one with homemade sauce and rub (all natural and sugar free).

A big thanks to Car Wash Mike for helping me decide how to make the last rack for my girlfriend's special diet. I also would like to thank Celtic Wolf, EGGARY, and grillmandan for their, many suggestions as well for sugar alternatives.

It was a great day in Boston. I kept hydrated by drinking Blue Moon Honey Moon, Augustinerbräu Helles, and a Coors Light.

Bryant's and Gates ribs made using Car Wash Mike's method

My girlfriend's made using 3-1-1 method. Middle hour was a bath of apple cider and apple cider vinegar 2:1 ratio, along with a generous coating of honey on the ribs to act as a sugar in the rub that lacked anything sweet. They came out great! Thanks Mike!

    Good pictorial. I'm glad you could at least add honey at the end for your girl friend. As a BTW, salt reduces the perception of bitterness, and so a rub with just salt and no sugar may still end up tasting sweet.

    Nice cook, glad I could help.
