Liquid Smoke and
Smoke Powder is a natural flavoring used to add a smoky flavor to foods.
The product is produced by burning hardwood chips and condensing the smoke
into a liquid form (and dehydrating it to make the powder). It is readily available in the U.S. in the spice or
condiment aisle of a grocery store. There is no substitute for this
ingredient; if you don't have it, simply omit it.

They were very
tender and my family thought they were good so I
would make it again.
boyfriend and I loved this homemade sauce!!
I used boneless
country ribs. It turned out wonderful!
this recipe last summer and I have made baby
backs with this recipe about 6 or 7 times
already! They always come out great. Sometimes
and I'll tweak the amount of garlic or bbq sauce
to ketchup ratio to get a different variation.
You can't go wrong!

This has to be the best for ribs!!!My
hubby was not a rib fan until he had this recipe. And even the
kids gobbled it all up. I set aside sauce for the kids and then
some for the "adults" and add abit more spice for us who like it
hot. Thanks for the great site..and recipe
Wow These were awesome. I have made
several times and now cannot go to a family get together without

The best ribs I've ever had outside of
a restaurant. The meat fell off the bones! Very flavourful!!
