Canadian Barbecue Sauce

    10 min

    "This flavourful barbecue sauce for ribs is just like the kind they serve at a famous restaurant in Montreal, Quebec, that has people lining up on the street any given night of the week. Don't' skip the lemon juice or cinnamon. Simmer the leftover sauce until sugar is completely dissolved and serve on the side for those who like their ribs dripping with flavour."
