Father's Day Ribs !!

Thinking of my Dad today, and remembering how much he loved me. He also loved to barbeque - so it was only fitting that I fire up the egg and slap on some St. Louis ribs (all the posts lately about them were just the trick to send me to Winn Dixie :ohmy: !

My Dad's ribs were always great. I'd like to think he would have enjoyed these....

Getting started - ribs, DP Red Eye, and yellow mustard.

3 hours at 275 - indirect...

Foiled for another hour or so, then finishe with Bone Suckin' "Hot"...


Pretty day-ummmmed good - my husband and mother loved them. I think they were the best I've ever made - had to be the vibes from my Dad...

    The ribs look great!!!
    I have never tried the bone sucking sauce before. How does it compare to Blues Hog

    I've never had Blues Hog - it's on my list of "got to try". I'm told that Piggly Wiggly sometimes has it - even went to a PW yesterday looking for it, but alas they did not so I ended up with Bone Suckin'. I like it - a lot. Not too sweet and just the right amount of "hot" :laugh:

    Thank you kindly...yes, ribs seem to be the order of the day. I can't wait to have leftovers tomorrow! ;)
  • elzbthelzbth Posts: 2,075
    Thank you for the kind words. :)
  • elzbthelzbth Posts: 2,075
    Thanks for looking! A great day indeed... :)

    Weird vibes today - the potato salad was a dead ringer for my grandmother's! The tomato salad was all mine though - a friend gave me a b-load of tomatoes this morning. I have about 30 on the counter that need to continue ripening....going to make peach salsa! :)

    What a great meal you made! I loved everything on that plate. And i use mustard and Red-Eye Express just like you do. I have Blues Hog and I've used Bone Sucking Sauce. They are both at the top of my are gonna love your ribs with either one. If you end up ordering Blues Hog online, get a bunch at once because the shipping cost is fierce (at least to California).

    I'm glad the day was such a happy one for you.

    Thanks Judy - I have a trip planned this summer through northern Georgia/Alabama....if I don't find Blues Hog along the way I'm ordering from Hawgeyes when I get home. Hope you had a great day! :)

  • elzbthelzbth Posts: 2,075
    Thank you, my friend! Hope your day is blessed.
  • elzbthelzbth Posts: 2,075
    These are the ribs I grew up on....then I got "smart" and turned into a baby-back snob. Now I am even smarter, and find these really are the best! :laugh:
  • elzbthelzbth Posts: 2,075
    Thank you - it was a great day! Hope you enjoyed your's as well.... :)
