Salad- My mother-in-law makes this salad dressing that my husband aways wants me to make but no one will tell me how to make it..this is as close as I can get it based on what I think I taste..lol

Main- I found this idea in the cookbook listed below. I cooked the ribs using my own recipe and then flowed the glaze found in the cookbook.
Maple Glazed Grilled Ribs (adapted from Taste of Home "grill it" cookbook)
3lbs of back or side ribs seasoned
1c maple syrup
3 tbsp orange juice
3 tbsp ketchup
2tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp mustard
1 tsp mild curry powder
1 clove garlic minced
Preheat oven to 275F
Cut 2 pieces of aluminum foil large enough to fit the entire length of the rib rack. Lay one rack on each piece of foil. Season meat with your favourite seasonings. (I used garlic powder, msg free seasoning salt and a Swiss product called grill mix) Fold each side of the foil over the rack and then fold the end pieces over. Place on cookie sheet seam side up. Repeat steps for the second rack. Place cooking sheet in over and cook for 2 hours.
|Rib out of the oven after 2 hours|
While ribs are cooking you can start to prepare the maple glaze. Mix the next 8 ingredients in a small pot. Bring to a boil and then allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Cover and leave sit until ribs are on the BBQ.
