Western Sage Barbecue -- recipe

Danielle Alexander's life has suddenly turned upside down. On a wagon train to California to join her fiance, her father falls terminally ill in Oklahoma. Add to that a motherless newborn half-breed baby boy dropped literally into her arms by a wise, ancient Indian chief, who wants her to be the baby's mother "just until" her fiance comes to rescue her.

Oklahoma Barbecue Ribs


  • 4 pounds pork spareribs
  • 1/2 recipe of the Western Sage Barbecue Sauce, below. 

  • 2 onion2, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Serves 6 regular people, or four hungry eaters.


  1. Place spareribs in a large stock pot with 1/2 the barbeque sauce, onion, salt, and pepper. Pour in enough water to cover. Bring to a low boil, and cook approximately 40 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil grate. Remove spareribs from the stock pot, and place on the prepared grill. Use the remaining barbeque sauce to baste ribs while cooking. Grill ribs, basting and turning frequently, for 20 minutes, or until nicely browned.
