Pork spare ribs no BBQ sauce

edited June 2012 in EggHead Forum
I am hosting a party of 20 people with spare ribs five of them are unable to eat barbecue sauce that is tomato base I need help. Looking for a sauce I can put on the ribs to keep them moist. I will be cooking about 8-9 slabs on an extra large egg.

    You don't need any sauce. If you cook them low and slow they will stay moist.

    Also, there are quite a few sauces based on other things like vinegar, mustard, soda, or alcohol.

    Can always put a Trigg-like glaze on too of margarine, brown sugar, honey, and hot sauce.

    People like asian ribs too!

    My wife can't eat sugar so I never sauce mine.  They come out great!

    Tried "dry" ribs at the original Corky's in Memphis about ten years ago.  Haven't used sauce since.  I usually sauce some of the ribs for other people.

    Take Rich_ie's advice.  We never use sauce although we offer it to guests.  Rarely do they use it.  When cooked right they are very moist.

    I use a dry rub, and never use sauce. To me, the smoke is what makes ribs taste good, and I've never seen the reason to cover up all that great taste with a sauce.
