At least the veggies were good…

You really do get what you pay for. I picked up some beef ribs that were on sale, and when I got them home and out of the package I discovered why. The underside was a single layer of fat; there was no meat to be found except for what was seen on the side that could be seen through the package. I knew there were going to be issues, but I forged ahead and put them on the Performer after a thorough coating of granulated garlic, Cajun seasoning mix, and some mesquite grilling spice mix. They cooked away for about 2 hours and were joined by some corn on the cob for the last 30-40 minutes of the cook.

I smeared some bottled BBQ sauce on the ribs about 10 minutes before I was ready to pull them off; I don’t normally sauce beef ribs but figured I might as well give it a try just for grins and giggles. Some cabbage slaw joined it all on the plate, and it was time to eat.

The meat portions of the ribs actually tasted really good. Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of meat, and between the bones and all the fat the dog is a happy camper tonight. The corn was very good, and the slaw was tasty even though I was didn’t have any wine or cider vinegar and substituted balsamic vinegar in its place.

I wonder if there are any leftover sausages still in the refrigerator…
