Make THIS Labor Day barbecue especially memorable with a Taste of Home recipe!  Barbecue sauce is just like chili, there's a lot of different variations and when you find one the family likes, you stick to it.  I've got your favorite right here!  (I used ribs without the bone).  ENJOY!


•1/2 cup packed brown sugar

•1 teaspoon pepper

•3/4 teaspoon salt

•6 pounds pork baby back ribs

•1/4 cup honey

•1 bottle (12 ounces) dark beer or beef broth

•1/4 cup cider vinegar

•1 bottle (18 ounces) barbecue sauce



•Combine the brown sugar, pepper and salt; rub over ribs. Place ribs bone side down on a rack in a large shallow roasting pan. Drizzle with honey. Combine beer and vinegar; pour around ribs. Spoon some of the beer mixture over ribs.

• Cover tightly with foil and bake at 325° for 1 hour. Reduce heat to 250°; bake 2 hours longer or until tender.

• Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Drain ribs. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until browned, turning and basting occasionally with barbecue sauce. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce. Yield: 6 servings.
