Father's Day is right around the corner and we're all getting in the mood for some cooking outside! So I think it's a perfect time to feature some of the best ribs you'll find.
I'd like to share a recipe that we gave out this month in the newsletter that Barbara and I send out. (If you're not on the mailing list and you'd like to be, click here and we'll get you signed up)
It's from Smoke in the Mountains Cookbook: The Art of Appalachian Barbecue which is an entire book devoted just to the manly art of barbecue. If you like this recipe, you may want to get your own copy to give for a Father's Day gift. We've got them on sale right now for $12.70 (a $4.00 savings). Hope you enjoy it!
Sweet 'n' Easy Barbecue Beef Ribs
1 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
5 pounds (or more) country-style beef ribs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup strawberry jelly
1/4 cup beer
1/4 cup whiskey
1/4 cup real butter
Combine the garlic, pepper, salt, and sugar in a bowl. Rub this mix into the ribs. Place ribs in a covered dish or freezer bag and place in the fridge overnight. Combine the remaining ingredients and brush on the ribs. Grill or smoke over medium indirect heat for about 2 hours. Increase to medium to high heat and grill while basting. Serve hot.
