IMG_0745 Yum it's suppertime! This week we are listening to the blues and drinking and eating bourbon. Here is recipe for a bourbon bbq sauce, a sweet and spicey rub, and a method for cooking ribs over the bbq real quick! I used 2 racks of ribs from PG Meat people Homesteaders Meats. They were super!

  • start to carmelize the onion and garlic in the butter over lowish medium heat
  • raise to medium heat, add your bourbon!
  • let that bubble for about 5 minutes
  • add remaining ingredients and let simmer for about 10 minutes. If it's gettin real thick, add a little more water
