Labor Day is always a Day to do something special to celebrate the end of summer and enjoy the warm weather before it goes away. Barbecue Ribs, juicy, succulent and dripping with gooey sauce that is finger-lickin good just fill the bill. As long as your fingers are getting messy, why not enjoy some yummy, buttery grilled sweet corn with a hint of chile and lime?
Spare ribs and pork in general are at very good prices, making it an even better idea. There was a recent discussion over the internet on a site called Foodies, whereby all manner of methods for barbecuing ribs were reviewed. One of the subscribers was entering a barbecued rib contest and wanted to have killer ribs in order to win. So she solicited ideas and many of us gave them to her. It was very interesting to see all the various ways people do ribs, from boiling them first to trimming the fat. And then, there was the range of ideas for sauces and rubs.
I am giving you here how I like to do them, after many years of trial and error and watching so many rib competitors cook them so many ways when I have judged the barbecue contests.
