We’ve been watching alot of Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives bbq episodes which made us crave bbq ribs so much that we had to try our hands at it ourselves. This was my first meal after a week of involuntary liquid diet!

Of course you can’t have bbq without a sauce and we’re so glad that we discovered this vinegary sauce as it cuts the grease so well that one could finish up one’s slab of ribs without any problem. I based my sauce on the one from an Eastern North Carolina bbq sauce from Allrecipes and add a few twists of my own.
