    Planning on doing some baby backs this weekend. I normally do not put any sauce on my ribs during the cook, but would like to have a couple of different sauces to serve on the side. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I make my own BBQ sauce or shall I say I take some regular cheap bbq sauce and lets say doctor it up with hat ever I find in th refrig and then slather that on my ribs sometime. I usually don't sauce them and I just let the smoke and rib speak for itself. Wonderfully to me.

    JBW - i've got a heck of a good memphis rub, mop/baste and sauce. the three components work together very well, but by the sounds of it, you have your own rub and (if you choose to use one) mop/baste.

    if that's the case, then just use the sauce. if you want to try all three together, i guarantee results! either way, you should be in good shape:

    good luck!



    Ron’s Memphis-style Dry Rub for Ribs

    · 1 Tbsp. dried lemon zest
    · 1 Tbsp. granulated garlic
    · 1 Tbsp. onion powder
    · 1 Tbsp. chili powder
    · 1 Tbsp Worcestershire powder (Worcestershire pepper if powder is unavailable)
    · 2 Tbsp. paprika
    · 2 salt
    · 4 Tbsp. Turbinado sugar

    Mix together; slather prepared mustard on ribs, then apply rub. Cover and set ribs in fridge overnight.

    Ron’s Memphis-style Basting Sauce for Ribs

    · 3 cups apple cider vinegar
    · 2 cups beer or lemonade
    · 1 cup prepared mustard
    · 1-1/4 cup dark brown sugar
    · 1 /2 cup oilive oil
    · 1 can A&W root beer

    Combine first four ingredients in a saucepan and mix well. Cook very slowly for 1 hour. Add sugar, butter, and root beer to mixture and slow boil for 30 minutes. After the ribs have been on the smoker for at least an hour-and-a-half, generously apply baste once every hour to both sides.

    Ron’s Memphis-style Finishing Sauce for Ribs

    · 5 oz. low-sodium soy sauce
    · 5 oz. Worcestershire sauce
    · 12 oz. catsup
    · 24 oz. tomato juice
    · 1 cup apple cider vinegar
    · 1 cup dark brown sugar
    · Juice of 1 lemon
    · 1 tsp. white pepper
    · 1 tsp. dry mustard
    · 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
    · 1/2 tsp. onion powder
    · 1/2 tsp. oregano
    · 1/2 tsp. basil

    Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 1 hour. Let sauce stand for 2 hours before serving on the side with ribs. Optionally, you can also brush sauce on ribs as they come off the smoker.
