Grill Ready Ribs ‘n Chicken


(Updated with Pic !)  I’m sorry I don’t currently have pics for this post…. if I take one after everything hits the grill I will post it up. I couldn’t reach for the camera while my hands were all meated-up and we’ve been busy hosting parents so the house is a bit busy.

But I digress … it is an abso-freakin-lutely amazing weekend with perfect weather and we are totally taking advantage of it with a back yard BBQ. We impulsively purchased a rib rack last weekend at home depot so we are putting it to good use today with some grilled ribs. The ribs, purchased at Costco for cheap (and they are really nice!) are very easy to prepare:

Dry grill rub – even mix of paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, some chili powder, and maybe a touch of salt

2-3 tablespoons of aplle cider vinegar per ziploc

several gallon ziploc bags – depends on how much you are making

Rub the ribs down with the dry rub in the morning and place them in the ziploc with the vingar and allow them to marinate all day until you are ready to grill. 

For friends who don’t eat pork, we are making grilled chicken breast with the following marinade:

1 generous pinch of herbs de provence (we got ours from Herb Lyceum farm – it has some lavendar in it)

1/2 cup white wine

generous pinch of garlic salt

Several chicken breasts

Place all ingredients in the ziploc and marinate for the day ! 

I’ll post an update later today with pictures and more recipes for sides and cocktails.

Happy grilling !
