Dibs on my Ribs Recipe Contest and Giveaway

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

We are right smack in the middle of grilling season! Doug has always enjoyed grilling, but especially the last couple of year’s after getting his new grill. He has definitely become quite the grill master, not only cooking up Burgers and Hot Dogs, but trying his hand at Buttterflied Chicken and Asparagus.

Now he’s giving some Pork Ribs a try for the Dibs on my Ribs Recipe Contest, co-sponsored by Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc., McCormick & Company, Inc., Kraft Foods, Inc., and the National Pork Board.

Doug has been wanting to try wood chips for awhile now, and these Apple Wood Smoked Ribs were the perfect opportunity. The prepackaged chips make it simple to use and experiment with new flavors.

While the wood chips soaked in water, he rubbed down the ribs with McCormick Grill Mates Sweet and Smokey Rub and fired up the grill. Sometimes simple is better, we could have spent hours marinading the ribs but with the complete taste that you get from the Grill Mates Spice Rub and the infusion of the smoke from the Apple Wood nothing else is needed, simple right.

    When we do bbq we go all out. Slow cook the ribs/pork for hours and hours…starting with dry rub…but finish with sauce either on ribs or on side…Sticky Fingers is the best way to eat.
    We have lots of sides like sweet Ga Cornbread, Collards, Kettles of Boiled Corn on the Cob, Tater or Mac Salad and Coleslaw or Tossed Salad…lots of sweet tea to wash it all down.
    Fisnish up with either Pineapple upside down cake, nanner puddin and/or summer fruit salad.
    LOTS and LOTS of damp linen napkins.
