Plated + Served: Chipotle Rubbed and Glazed Spareribs


What a great weekend in sports!

What’s your pleasure? Late-inning dramatic comebacks? Play-off baseball…check! Smash-mouth college football, with heated rivalries like Texas vs. OU? Step right up! (Though, being from Texas, Mama’s still smarting a bit from that one). NFL football upsets that nobody saw coming? (Heck, even Tim Tebow completed a pass.) You got it! …

And here’s the best part…it’s only going to get better!

So, with all this sports activity (uh, make that “spectating”), here’s a great barbecue recipe that’ll ensure you don’t miss any of the action. Prepare the ribs in the oven ahead of time and when you’re ready to eat, finish them on the grill for about 10 minutes to get that charred-crust tastiness.

If you love sauce, double the recipe so you’ll have more than enough lip-smacking deliciousness to smear on the ribs.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get ready for Game Two of the Cards-Giants series!

      Spareribs are at a good price right now… but remember the price of pork is heading skywards, so maybe freeze some for later this winter!
