That is not a phrase often uttered from my mouth. In fact, I don't think I've ever uttered that. I could easily be a vegetarian if it wasn't for my love of Hawaiian pizza (ham & pineapple) and the fact that every once in a while I want a good BBQ hamburger. Other than that, I'm good.
But the other weekend the hubby and a friend took an 8 hour BBQ class at this BBQ restaurant. He loved it. He came home with the best "homework!" The class was taught on several types of BBQ's: gas, charcoal and one other kind that I can't remember. It gave him the chance to figure out what kind of BBQ he wanted (we needed a new one anyway). So now we've got a brand new charcoal BBQ.
And today we tested in out: ribs with homemade BBQ sauce. He made the sauce in a double boiler. There was some serious BBQing going on the kitchen today. It was my job to make the cornbread, because really, what is BBQ without cornbread?
The verdict? The best ribs I've ever had. The best ribs his friend from Tennessee has ever had. It was really good. I will be requesting this again.
