We don’t do ribs too often as they tend to be expensive. Occasionally though, ribs are just what we need and want. I am especially fond of ribs on Independence Day! I am actually dreaming of a nice 4th of July BBQ right now. I’m currently stuck waiting to be called for jury duty. Blah. It smells awful, and I want to go home. What’s better than daydreaming of summer adventures? Ha!
Seriously though. This grilled BBQ ribs recipe is really nice. If you’re not a fan of really thick sauces on your ribs, you’ll love this recipe. It’s a thinner sauce, and it is quite tangy, which I personally adore! I’m alllll about that tang! I blame my mom. She would eat entire cases of lemons each WEEK when she was pregnant with me. Mmmmm, tang. Haha.
If you’re looking for a good grilling recipe to have all summer long, this is the one for you! I love it because it is tangy, but it also has a bit of a spice to it. If you want it a little thicker, some flour or a corn starch slurry would probably work!
Thanks to the folks at All Recipes for this delicious recipes!
