I had some nice meaty beef ribs and was about to do them in a normal 3-2-1 cook when my brain had a spasm. I wanted burnt ends. Why couldn’t finish my ribs like burnt ends? I couldn’t think of a good reason so I did! Continue reading Burnt End Beef Ribs
I do like to try premium barbecue sauces and a friend had told me he really liked Stubb’s Original so I gave it a try. Continue reading Stubb’s Original BBQ Sauce, Product Review
