DIBS ON MY RIBS CONTEST
I received a box full of really fun items to try my hand at grilling ribs (well my husband helped just a little!). You can also try your hand at grilling ribs in the Dibs on My Ribs Contest (more info below)!
I was stunned when I opened the box to discover a fantastic cutting board, sauce mop, basting brush, rub rack, wood chips for enhancing the flavor of the ribs, BBQ tools and McCormick Seasonings. YUM-O!
My husband and I decided to have our own private “rib-fest” while we were at our vacation home last week. We also happened to be celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary and thought this would be a blast.
To season our ribs, we decided to try the McCormick Grill Mates Sweet & Smoky rub instead of a BBQ Sauce. I rinsed the ribs and coated them generously with the rub.
We were really curious about the Weber wood chips. I have to admit that I love the flavor of wood chips when grilling meat, but somehow I really never knew how to do it on a gas grill. I have only previously seen wood chips used with a traditional grill. The little foil packets I received are SO convenient and what a difference they made! I don’t think we’ll ever BBQ without them again. We chose the Apple flavored wood chips for our ribs. We simply soaked them for about 30 minutes and set them on the grill with our ribs. It couldn’t have been easier!
Now I didn’t even know that rib racks existed, but what a super idea. The ribs don’t stick to the grill when using this, and it really made it easy to cook them. Mmmm – is your mouth watering yet?
The smell coming from the barbecue was amazing. I’m sure our neighbors wanted to come over to join us, but this was our night. Finally it was time to pull the ribs off the grill and we couldn’t have been more ready. Take a look!
These ribs are the BEST ribs I have ever tasted (and I have tried a lot of ribs in my day!). The flavor was amazing, and they were so tender and…just…OH MY!
