Ribs are big business and nothing goes better with ribs next to a good rub and some smoke, is some butt kicking sauce to wet them down and have a finger licking frenzy. (with super clean hands no less). This recipe features some country style pork ribs, which I zapped in my Ninja* Foodi on pressure cooker mode, ready in about an hour, tender and juicy, ready to sauce. I used liquid smoke for this round, a handy cheat to have on hand! The sauce being showcased today, gratefully turned out the way I envisioned it.
This Blackberry Barbecue sauce is delicious and hits all the right notes. You can slather it anywhere and be safisfied with the results. Get your bibs and finger licking face on, because these wet ribs are addictive!

3/4 c. Blackberry jam, seedless
