Alternative to bbq sauce.

Options
My wife does not care for ribs. However the first ribs I made on the egg she really liked. But, she didn't care for the bbq sauce I brushed on them. 
What else can I brush on the ribs as an alternative for her?

    Dry rub only. I always leave at least one rack without sauce. Don't baste it at all.

    Me and the wife prefer to eat the ribs dry with just the rib rub we use. I'm not much of a sauce guy either.

    You could use some type of glaze or finishing sauce. There are literally thousands of recipes on the Internet and most cook books related to Q. A finishing sauce can be anything that you enjoy so if she has a particular taste aim for that. Finishing sauces can be just about anything that you like the taste of. From simple one ingriedant sauces to very complex concoctions. The sky is the limit.

    There are so many sauces out there.  For example, bbq sauce in North Carolina is completely different than bbq sauce in Kansas City.

    Tried a lemon brown sugar sauce off the net, SWMBO said it was too lemony - maybe it is just what your better half likes. Had molasses, brown sugar, tomato sauce or ketchup and bunch of fresh lemon juice, didn't keep the recipe but I'm sure there is one out there you might like. 

    Another favourite of ours is apple butter sauce.

    Maybe an Asian style sauce, like Teriyaki, or sweet & spicy chili sauce, or orange marmalade glaze.

    or as others have said, just your dry rub.

    I think teriyaki would be good. I'll try that. Thanks!

    I never sauce ribs. It's on the table if wanted. Just dry rub (the one on the left Bad Byrons Buyt Rub).

    S&P with very little brown sugar is good.
