This pungent barbecue sauce, spiked with dry mustard and chili powder, is a perfect mate with these spareribs---it’s also great slathered on chops, sausage, or pork burgers on the grill.  Serve these spareribs with buttered corn on the cob, green salad, and lots of napkins for mopping up


  • 3 pork spareribs (slabs, 5-6 pounds)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup dry mustard
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

    2 tablespoons lemonjuice were too overpowering. I added some more sugar to balance it.
