This time of year we all get excited about outdoor cooking, whether it’s grilling or smoking. And ribs are one of our favorite things to cook outside. If you’re planning a Father’s Day cook out, start here.
When it comes to cooking ribs, there’s science and an art to it, and on the BBQ circuit, where competition is stiff, secrets are held close to the apron.
That’s why we’ve been enjoying the excellent PBS series Project Smoke with BBQ expert Steven Raichlen. If it’s not carried by your local station, you can access full episodes online. We like these episodes about ribs: Raichlen on Ribs and also Ribs Rock the Smoker. Watch them for some pro tips.
In need of ribs? Shop ribs at dartagnan.com – from short ribs to Denver lamb ribs, and the standard porky goodness of Berkshire ribs. There is no pork equal to Berkshire for flavor. This heritage breed has reached cult-favorite status with chefs around the world, and it could be your go-to pork this summer.
Succulent and meaty Berkshire Pork St. Louis Ribs are delicious with any of your favorite spice combinations, whether simmered in barbecue sauce or simply rubbed with salt and pepper. The St. Louis cut are simply spare ribs with the tops detached for a more standard, rectangular size that assures uniform cooking.
