I thought I would record some recipes here. Well, not real recipes. There are no measurements, just splashes, squirts, and spoonfuls.
In a small bowl I mixed about a cup of BBQ sauce, 2 squirts of brown mustard, two drops of smoke flavor, 2 splashes of apple cider vinegar, and some mesquite seasoning.
Today I put about 3/4 cup of water in the bottom of the crock pot. I don't think I will do that next time. Then I added my frozen ribs and poured the sauce over top. Its in the slow cooker . . . I'll tell you tonight how it turns out.
When dinner started everything looked amazing. Then we dug into the ribs and they had bones. My younger sister and I didn't see what the big deal was--but we never minded being covered in BBQ sauce. As my sister, who loves being proper (how did we grow up in the same house and turn out so different?) watched her date dig into bone-in rib she got a little on edge. The pile of napkins seemed offensive to her, but we managed to get through the main course.
So, if you are trying to impress your daughter's date, make sure you have boneless. If you are trying to create memories that will last much longer than the guy, buy BONE-IN.
