It’s barbecue month so that means you have 31 days of excuse to have a barbecue. Celebrate every day if you want. You can barbecue in your back yard or pack up the RV for a weekend of fun and barbecue. Roast a whole pig, barbecue ribs and burgers. Make sure you have the appropriate sides to go with everything.
Boondock Barbecue Ribs
- Rack of pork ribs – two good-sized racks will feed about four people if you have plenty of sides
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Cumin, ground
- Badia’s Redfish seasoning
- Your favorite barbecue sauce
Liberally coat the ribs with the spices. Rub them into the ribs. Coat the ribs with a thin coating of barbecue sauce. Set the grill for about 285 degrees Fahrenheit or start them in the oven. Cook at 285 for 4 hours. Add another coat of barbecue sauce and increase the heat to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the ribs for another 30 to 45 minutes. Serve with your favorite sides.
For sides, make a green salad with iceberg, tomato, cucumbers, black and green olives, ham and cheese. Homemade potato salad or macaroni salad also go good with the ribs. Make southern creamy coleslaw to go with it all.
Other Barbecue Ideas
If you want to roast a whole pig, you’ll need a day where you are doing nothing else. Use a pig that is under 90 pounds. Figure about a pound of “dead weight” per person, which gives you about 6 ounces of cooked meat. It takes 7 to 8 hours to roast a pig that is 100 pounds. The slower you roast it, the better it is. If the pig starts to brown up in the first hour, you’ll need less coals or you’ll need to move the pig higher off the coals. In the last hour, if the skin and fat hasn’t started to crackle, make the fire hotter.
