    Just my wife and I home last night and she decided she wanted some "sticky" ribs. My GOSM is on hiatus this week so I had to improvise. Used my gas grill with indirect heat. Not perfect but it turned out not too bad. Ribs were rubbed with a version of Jeff's rub. Grill maintains a pretty constant temp of about 235 and I used a mixture of apple and cherry wood. The last 30 minutes the ribs were basted with a Honey Garlic Sauce. If anyone is interested this is an excellent sauce I have been using for years and the family stills says it's their favorite. Ribs don't last long with this sauce but make sure you have lots of napkins.

    Honey Garlic Rib Sauce
    • ½ cup chopped onion
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 ½ cups Ketchup
    • 1 cup honey
    • 2 tbsp vinegar
    • 2 tbsp thick steak sauce
    • 1 tsp prepared mustard
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
    • Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
    • Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
    • Let cool and use as basting/finishing sauce for ribs.
    Qview is before and after the sauce went on .....

    I like the stainless steamer insert that dionysus is using.

    I'm anxious to try your recipe. We came across this honey garlic sauce (I know it's store bought, but hey, sometimes easy is OK).

    We always add a bunch of fresh grated ginger to it. We like it a lot. It's real sweet, tangy, and above all STICKY.

    Has anyone else ever tride it?

    I use Heinz 57 sauce, but I imagine any steak sauce (A1 etc) would work just as well

    My personal favorite! I have a neighbor that always like to say "You should never put steak sauce on a steak" (you know the old line)

    My question to him is: If you like the steak sauce, what are you supposed to put it on.

    Of course the best answer is to mix it 2:1 w/ honey and glaze it onto your chicken.
