Just salt

  1. Was watching cooking shows on PBS yesterday and there was a segment on Dreamland Barbecue in Tuscaloosa, AL. Never ate there, but know it has a good reputation.

    For years Dreamland served nothing but ribs. Now they have ribs and banana pudding. They're been in business about 60 years, so they must know ribs.

    What I found interesting was that the pitmaster said that before they put the ribs in the smoker, they put nothing on them except a sprinkle of salt.

    I've heard of people who used only salt, pepper and garlic powder, but never just salt.

    Anyone ever tried that?

    Is should say that they do use a generous amount of sauce on the ribs when they serve them. They have a store not too far from me in Atlanta, and I might try it except that by all accounts it isn't nearly as good as the original Tuscaloosa location.

    I've never tried that, but I've heard of it. That usually works if you like your ribs all sauced up, but I like them 'dry' with just the rub on it. If they've been open that long though, they know what they're doin'!
