Okay, so BBQ and yard work don't go so well together. Weirdly, my wood chunks caught fire twice, never happened before, and the temp spiked to hotter than the therm can measure for 10 minutes or so at a time...thankfully I kept checking. But the damage was done. The ribs came out black.
Black as pitch.
Well, black or not I was going to eat them, and me and the crew tore them up. Not one left. I'm not going to tell you they were delicious, but they were darrn good. Surprising, I thought they'd be awful, but they were tender and flavorful. Served em up with some mustard sauce. Helped mask the slight dryness!
The beans were neither black or dry, I'm pleased to announce!
Well, I think there is a rule here that doesn't allow black rib pictures to be posted. Sorry guys, I promise I will do better next time!
