Been craving ribs since I saw a posting the other day. Did a 12 hr overnight shift at my side gig. Hit Kroger on the way home. Got a couple slabs of BB RIBS. and ran across these in the meat dept.

Seven poppers for $7 Figured what the heck, I’d give ’em a try.

Cut the slabs in half because I wanted to sauce a couple differently. Gave em a mustard binder with Malcolm’s “The BBQ RUB” on them.

Onto the kettle with KBB and cherry for flavor. Used a rib rack I’d bought on a whim…wasnt impressed. Cooked them unwrapped average temp of 250 degrees til they were toothpick tender and passed the bend test.

sauced with Captain Rodney’s Boucan Glaze, Jeff’s BBQ sauce and the rest just left naked.

Poppers weren’t bad for $7. Had to try one out while the ribs were finishing.

Yeah I do my reg job 40 hrs a week then pick up a 12 hr on the weekend at my side gig. Always hours for a nurse.

Jim
Yep. My wife is a nurse and she can work ALL the hours she wants. In fact she's picking up a shift for someone tomorrow.

Yes!! That’s what I’m talking about. They look perfect! I see that Mac n cheese too that’s what my kids tear up when I cook 😂. Nothing like a 6+ hour cook for my kids to eat some Mac n cheese

It all looks good. I could go for half rack. Nice work.

Ribs... YUM!
Half rack portions are great serving sizes.

Now that’s called a recharge meal! Nice 3rd shift work!
Thanks guys. Scratched my rib itch.

Dang Jim, those ribs look awesome… rest of the plate looks good too! Nice you could fit in some Q time after working that much!

Oh, and I’ve never been a fan of rib racks either!

Ribs look real good Jim, but I think you need a new set of chompers. You left some meat on Dem Bones.

Point for sure

LOL! That was for Zeke, my lab. He does a great job of being my sous chef (read that as being underfoot) I let him have a bone or two to gnaw on.
