There’s no doubt summer is here, even in Minnesota, where for the most part it’s been cool. And there’s no doubt Father’s day is just around the corner, too, this Sunday! Father’s day always makes me think about being outside, maybe barbecuing, and barbecuing makes me think about ribs. I mean other than a big T-bone there’s not much more manly than Ribs! And if you’re looking for something different, take a peek at these Spicy Jerk Ribs with Sweet Chutney Glaze.
Lately, I’ve had it in my head that I wanted to make some ribs rubbed with Jerk spices (click here for Spicy Jerk Ribs with Chutney Glaze) and then glazed, kind of like I did my Cider Glazed Ribs awhile back but with a definite Jerk flavor. So I checked out the Jerk seasoning at the store. I’m sure it would have been ok, but it was pricy, had additives, and didn’t really have the jerk flavors I was looking for. I want a Jamaican Jerk Spice Rub that’s going to mimic the real-deal Jerk flavors I fell in love with years ago.
