    I was looking for the molasses country style ribs recipe that used to be on your bottle and was so disappointed it was not there. I did go to your website and didn’t find that recipe but one for your sweet bbq sauce recipe so I combined that recipe with another recipe for country style ribs I found on line. I would have preferred your ribs recipe. Do you think you could send it to me for the next time I make your country style ribs? Thank you very much. I really wasn’t interested in publishing a comment but rather was looking for the recipe for future use. If memory serves, they were the best ribs ever!!!
