As the weekend approaches, you may be searching for just the right mix to serve for gameday. Go smokin'- like a 95MPH fastball and you'll score with my homerun sticky ribs. But, you need to start early, they take time - but so worth the wait! Your friends and family will be so glad you did.
Ribs & Sauce a perfect relationship
Everyone has a favorite way to serve ribs. Some like it dry, with just a rub, others will dip dry ribs and wet them down with a vinegary sauce, or lather them up with a sugary sticky sauce right before coming off the grill. Myself, I enjoy all versions. Variety is a good thing!
Ribs cannot be prepared in a hurry, so toss a burger on a separate hot grill while you wait. How-to prepare the Ribs.
For Making Ribs with Sticky Sauce:
15 minutes prior to removing the slow cooked ribs, brush ribs lightly with a little sauce to moisten and add flavor. Remove, cut and serve ribs as is or serve extra sauce on side for pouring over ribs.
