'Top Chef' host shares the secret to the best rib recipe.

Padma Lakshmi loves ribs. Don't believe us? Exhibit A:

Our resident rib lover recently shared where she sampled the best ribs of her life -- her childhood neighbor's house. She's still got a very vivid memory of the sweet smell of barbequed meats wafting over into her yard.

But Padma reveals that the true secret to his success was in the sauce: "They were really sticky and they had a little spice to them, but he would even add a little grape jelly into the barbeque sauce." Who would have thought?
