My wife loves ribs and isn’t too fussy about how they’re prepared. But even she thought her slab of ribs was overcooked. To me, it seemed like ‘rib jerky.’ The rack we got had obviously been prepared earlier in the day and then sat around,...More

Love the grilled pineapple side... rare to find. Brisket very good. Sometimes ribs are dry. Not sure why they are not consistent re quality of ribs. Great corn muffins.. I but the Famous Daves Corn Muffins (box) at grocery store I like them so much.
