As the center of Southern barbecue, Memphis offers sauces that occupy the middle ground between other styles. These blends provide moderate amounts of sweet, heat, and tang, which add up to a lot of flavor.
These ribs are unique because of the spicy rub and the combination of sweet brown sugar and spicy jalapeno peppers in the sauce. I always make them for my husband's birthday. —Shirley Manthey, Omaha, Nebraska
