During grilling season, I love to make my own barbecue sauce. There are tons of recipes out there, and it's surprisingly pretty easy to put together. You toss a bunch of ingredients in a pan and let it simmer, then bam! You end up with a thick and delicious sauce to slather on ribs or chicken. This recipe has double the flavor because the ribs are coated with a spice-rub before being smothered with barbecue sauce. The main components, paprika, thyme, dried cherries, and Zinfandel, might seem like an unusual combination, but they work wonderfully well together. The resulting ribs are finger-licking good. You should really make them this weekend! Here's the recipe.
