Ribs With Mixed Berry BBQ Sauce Recipe.

Barbecue sauce and berries are two great tastes that taste great together – and if you can’t decide what kind of berries you want, why not go for them all? I used a mix of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, but you can pick whatever you like, either fresh or frozen. Blend them right on into a basic smoky-sweet BBQ sauce and you’re left with the perfect topping for a big rack of ribs.

  • 5 lb. baby back ribs;

Ingredients for the mixed berry BBQ sauce
