I just got done eating some ribs done my new braunfels offset.
I did 2 kinds one wtih a sweet and smokey rub my own version and dr. pepper bbq sauce and the other a rub i can't recall the name of and a home brewed apricot bbq sause.
i prefered the dr pepper ribs vs the apricot. but i think the biggest diff was the rub. i smoked them for about 5 hrs using oak at 225-250 degress and sprayed wit h apple cider everyhour moppped with bbq sauce just priot to taking off so if ya haven't in my opinion try the dr pepper bbq sauce. here are some pics.

Vinsect,
The Dr. Pepper bbq sauce is in BBQ USA Pg.376 the only modification i made was to put a little j.d. in it and the apricot i just threw toghether but here it goes
1/2 tsp salt
2 tb butter unsalted
2 tb brown sugar
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar

i first combined the butter and brown sugar until the brown sugar was dissolved then added remaining ingredients and bought to a boil and turned down the heat and simmered for about 15 minutes until it thickened. hope you enjoy and happy grilling.

Wow, that was fast.

BBQ-USA is still on the shopping list. That's one more reason to get it.
How did the apricot sauce taste? What other meats would it compliment?

Vinsect.
you are right about getting that book i have HTG, BBQ USA, SRM, BCC, and
BB and they are all woth it. I think the apricot sauce was very good all the measurements i gave were approximate so go with your taste buds. I think it would be best on poultry and pork but who nows what else it could go on. Happy Grilling.
