BBQ Spare Ribs Recipe – It’s Mouthwatering!

This spare rib recipe is delicious, with BBQ sauce made from scratch and popped into the oven….the aroma that travels through the house makes my mouth water.  Yes, it’s that good!

I got this recipe from my husband’s great aunt after she made it for us when we were visiting her in Sherwood Park, Alberta.  I am so thankful she was willing to share, but I don’t make it as often as I want to.  But when I do, I totally pig out!
