  • “What a wonderful change from the common ‘bbq sauce’ recipes.This glaze is fantastic, and not as sweet as you might think.I did sprinkle a bit of seasoning on the ribs before the first cooking stage, but that was the only change to the recipe I made.While it was baking with the glaze, I found it was dripping off and burning in the pan.I then put the ribs on a wire rack and suspended it over a pan of water.Worked like a charm.The ribs could be glazed over and over without fear of the sugar burning.I can’t believe no one has taken the opportunity to give this a try in the 8 years it’s been posted.Terri, this is fabulous.Thanks :)Honoured to make this as a “Thank You” for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.”
