It all started with a dry rub! Ground mustard, onion, garlic, cayenne, chili powder, salt, and fresh cracked pepper created the perfect crust on the ribs!
After a generous spicy massage, and long rest, this bad boy went on a 500 degree grill for a few minutes on each side!
After getting a seared edge, into the crockpot it went.
The slow cooker did all of the hard work- a couple of hours on high, followed by a couple of hours on low- and the meat was falling off the bone!
I pulled the ribs out of crockpot, slathered them in a bath of bbq sauce (Sticky Fingers is my fave!) and popped them in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes to get the sauce extra sticky!
While the ribs were doing their thing in the oven, a side salad was thrown together!
Dinner was served- and enjoyed! This dinner was great way to wrap up a long and emotionally draining summer. I decided I am DEFINITELY ready for fall! Bring on crisp days, warm sweaters, running with OUT humidity, pumpkins, apples, and butternut squash (in everything!) And definitely more blogging about eats and adventures!!!
