Bourbon and Brown Sugar Ribs - it knocked it out of the park!

Recipe: Bourbon and Brown Sugar Ribs

Summary: To be honest, I think the apple butter itself brushed on meats on the grill would be wonderful – it’s the perfect texture and consistency. But, I went ahead and added some other delicious things to it – like bourbon and brown sugar – and it knocked it out of the park!
