If you plan on cooking some ribs....beef or pork...here is a pretty good recipe I found and modified. Trick ingredient here is the g**** jelly!
ONLY USE "Welch's Concord Jelly" if you can get it as it has a much better taste.
* 3-5 lbs baby back ribs
* 2 tsp salt
* 1 tsp black pepper
* 1 cup hoisin sauce
* 1 cup g**** jelly
* 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
* 2 tbsp dry mustard
* 1 tbsp light brown sugar
* 1 tsp garlic powder
* 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
* Juice from 1 lime
1. Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper; set aside. Preheat grill for indirect cooking over medium heat. Place ribs on grill with not too much smoke.
Cover and cook until tender, about 1 hour.
2. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. When ribs are tender, move them to direct heat and continue to grill, uncovered. Baste with sauce and turn until crisp on both sides, about 5 minutes. Cut ribs into sections. Serve with remaining sauce.
Or you can try this variation....
1 10-oz. jar currant or g**** jelly
1 6-oz. can tomato paste
2 Tbs water
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dry mustard powder
1/2 tsp garlic granulated
1/4 tsp dried oregano, crushed
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp bottled Tabasco sauce
For sauce, in medium microwave-safe bowl, combine jelly, tomato paste and water. Stir in chili powder, garlic salt, oregano, pepper and hot pepper sauce. Micro-cook on HIGH (100% power) for 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until jelly is melted and mixture is well blended and bubbly. Micro-cook 2 minutes more, stirring once. Makes 1 1/2 cups sauce. (If desired, sauce may be prepared conventionally in medium saucepan. Combine all ingredients as above except increase water to 1/4 cup. Cook and stir over medium heat until jelly is melted and mixture is well blended. Boil gently, uncovered, for 3-4 minutes.
I already mentioned how I smoke the ribs so won't repost that....but the trick with both sauce recipes is the g**** jelly. A good friend of mine tried a variation of this and wins consistently at the Galveston County BBQ Cook Off and beats out over 250+ teams!!
REMEMBER...."Indirect HEAT...Don't Scorch Your MEAT!"
