May’s BBQ Day

Since I was to be out of town the first of May, I decided to do my monthly BBQ cook in late April. It was a very light day with only two briskets, a slab of ribs, and a tri tip roast. I was honored to be asked by Jenn over at Jenn’s Food Journey to do a guest post on her blog, so I did the tri tip and briskets for it. Please stop by her great blog and check it out.

I tried some new things for each piece of meat including the ribs. For this slab, I got it out of the fridge 2 hours before cooking and added a nice coating of Head Country All Purpose Championship Seasoning an hour before cook time. I cooked it at 225* - 230* for 6 hours and brushed on a glaze of Pioneer Woman’s BBQ sauce to both sides at the 5½ hour mark. Upon removal, I brushed a little more sauce on top and wrapped in foil to stay warm for pick up by my friend. Here they are just before wrapping.

This was a different rub and sauce than I normally use and I told my friend they would be different than normal and requested his feedback. This is the email he sent me - “The ribs were very good. I think I can say that they were best I have had.”

I think I feel a taste test coming on.

It's now time for Bev's Peonies to show off a little.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Mmm I've yet to try Pioneer Woman's bbq sauce but I agree...taste tests are in order! Looks delicious!

  2. Yum!!! The ribs look great. Chris just requested ribs tomorrow night for our boxing party..think I'll give this a shot!
    Oh..and your post looks fantastic on my site! Thanks for guest blogging! I used your header picture too, hope you don't mind :)

  3. Oh boy, I wish I could drop by and pick up a slab of those amazing ribs. Now that the weather is warming up a little bit I plan to do some BBQ-ing and put some of your great tips to use.

    Gorgeous peonies!

  4. Ribs are my favorite BBQ meat and the Texas food I miss most. My peonies are just getting out of the ground, but will be putting on a great show before long.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
