  • 2-4 Sport peppers

Instructions: (It’s simple)

  1. Cook dogs on skillet or grill, turning so you get a nice brown dog.
  2. Assemble : Bun, Mustard, Cheese, Dog, Peps, Tomato, Pickle Spear, then sprinkle with celery salt! Yes, you can top with mustard as well if you want double mustard.

Just Plain Good Ol’ Fall Off the Bone BBQ RIBS…

Standard

Just Plain Ol’ Fall Off the Bone Good BBQ RIBS

Prep: 15 min

Cook Time: 2 hrs (or until they fall off the bone).

Serves: Depends on how hungry you are!

PREP GRILL FIRST:

I use a medium bag of coals and after they are ready to go I knock them all down and slide to the back half of the pit so I can place the ribs wrapped in foil on the front half to “smoke” them.

Ingredients and instructions:

  • Fresh Pork Spare Ribs (how ever many you want) I eat about 3 but you may want to eat 6 🙂
  • Lay out to long pieces of foil and place ribs on top of double layered foil.
  • Spices: 1.5 tsp paprika, 1 tsb chili powder, 1tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp onion powder, Blend all spices together and rub onto pork ribs.
  • Salt Lick Hot BBQ Sauce: Drizzle about 2 TBS on each side and rub all over ribs.
  • Wrap up Ribs in foil tightly.
  • Place on prepped grill and cook for 1 hr and 45 min.
  • Take Ribs out of foil and place on bbq pit for 5 min each side to char.

Serve with any sides you want I like mac and cheese and collard greens 🙂
