It's not on the menu so I don't think it's for sale except along with the baby back ribs. Anyway thanks everyone for their answers, I ordered a variety pack (4 flavors) of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce on Amazon and will report back.

The recipe looks like a pretty standard BBQ sauce. A lot of the good sauces contain tamarind, and that one doesn't, so you might see if adding a bit of tamarind improves it.


My family likes the original Sweet Baby Ray's just as much as anything I make from scratch, so that is what I use.


A great big restaurant secret: Years ago, a food editor was trying to figure out the recipe for the sauce that all the good barbecue rib restaurants were using. So what she did was to dig around in their garbage to find the ingredients and what she found was big bottles of ordinary commercial barbecue sauce.


The process of cooking the ribs is what makes them good, not some magic sauce. Their sauce might not be anything too special. Maybe it is the smoker.

There's nothing healthy about sugar it is as bad as drinking alcohol. Weight gain is the least of your worries with sugar. It's the insulin sensitivity problem that causes diabetes in the long term if sugar is consumed in abundance. Sugar can cause your immune system to weaken especially if you are infected with a virus. Sugar is the preferred source of energy for viruses too.

I've got cancer and can easily lose 3-4 pounds a week without high caloric intake. Cancer didn't scare me, but losing 30 lbs in a couple of months scared the hell out of me. I did the math, and I didn't have that many months left at that rate. Plus my appetite is limited so I needed high caloric content with small quantities. Sugar and fatty foods like full dairy, cakes, ice cream, chocolate, sausage, etc. filled the bill and stabilized my weight over the past 4 years. I haven't varied by more than two pounds plus or minus in 4 years. I weigh myself in the morning, if I am a little low I had calories, if a little high I reduce calories for the day, which is by adding or subtracting desserts. I asked my oncologist about the connection with sugar and cancer. He told me that all carbs are converted to glucose before they are absorbed into all cells, healthy and cancer cells alike, so sugar was not a problem. The interesting thing is the cancer dropped my cholesterol from 200 to 100. My good cholesterol is less than 20, the lowest my GP has ever seen. I've been pre-diabetic for decades, not high enough for treatment, but the additional sugar didn't change that. I'm 73.

There are 2 brands i like, Sweet baby rays and a brand called Rib rack sauce. I like the rib rack sauce brand the best. Maybe you could take that and doctor it up extra for what ever you are using it for. Rib rack sauce is more like homemade to me.

We should stop selectively demonizing some food groups - it is just obsessively silly.

Sugar (the glucose part) is excellent food for your brain- memory, mood, etc.!
People's situations are different.
Everything is in moderation and the variety of different food is important.

Kale and carrots can kill you too...look it up! Any vegetable, any other food can for that matter...

Well it wouldn't hurt to ask, I used to go to lunch with a couple of ladies & they would always buy a container of ranch dressing to take home, it wasn't on the menu either, but the waitress would give them a container of it, for a price.

Thanks, but I don't go to LongHorn more than a few times a year. I wanted a source I could order any time.
