Chef Bubba's All American Barbeque

July 3, 2011

ribs.jpgIndependence Day- fireworks, grilling out, picnics, parades, patriotic music and more! Down on the bayou there is a breeze blowing.  It is summer time and the living is easy at the Red Neck café.

 What is more fitting for our Fourth of July barbeque than ribs? C'est si bon, mes amis.  Pair your ribs with your favorite potato salad, baked beans and dessert.  You might try my fruit cobbler. Forget to count calories for the day.

Fall Off The Bones Ribs:

My secret lies in the dry rub. You can add flavor without fat.

All American Barbeque Rub:

2 TBS mild paprika

2Tbs dark brown sugar

1 Tbs dry mustard

1 Tbs  chile powder

1 Tbs onion powder

2 tsps garlic powder

2 tsps salt

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp. ground black pepper

1-  4 lb. rack of ribs

Figure ½ lb. ribs per serving portion.  Of course, my cousin Andre will eat much more.  Have extra for unexpected guests or a cousin Andre. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Choose pork sparerib that are pink with white fat. Remove the thin membrane on back of ribs.  Cut a 4 lb. rack of ribs into serving sizde portions. Rub the dry rub into the ribs and refrigerate for 4 hrs. This will give the ribs a deeper flavor.  Stack ribs into a slow cooker and add 1 cup of beer. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs. Check tenderness and carefully remove from cooker. Heat up the grill. Place ribs on grill with fat side down. You may brush with your favorite barbeque sauce.  Cook for 10- 15 minutes.  Remove from grill and serve with extra barbeque sauce.

Now, mes amis, it is time to sit back and enjoy the lively conversation with your family and friends.  If you are having fireworks at your barbeque, try some of these safety tips:

1.       Fireworks should be fired from a concrete or asphalt surface. Select a surface that will not burn.

2.       Have a bucket of water handy.

3.       Keep fireworks away from grassy or woody areas.

4.       Clear all areas of combustible items.

5.       Animals are frightened by fireworks. Keep them inside.

6.       Wet down the launch area before lighting fireworks.

7.       Identify an adult with a water source to douse any sparks or flames

8.       Never handle fireworks after consuming alcohol or drugs.

9.       Never hold an active firework in your hands.

10.   Never try to relight a "dud" firework.  Immerse it in water.

11.   Light fireworks when the prevailing winds are away from spectators.

12.   Only children 12 years and older should use any type of sparklers.


Happy Fourth of July from Chef Bubba and Fabric.com
