Sweet Ancho Spice Rub

This is the season, isn’t it, if you haven’t already broken out the grill, to do it now? I * think* it’s finally safe, although this last week I had to get the winter jacket out as temperatures plummeted into the 30’s in the Twin Cities and Denver had snow. But if you are grilling for Memorial Day and doing ribs (or a pork butt) think about this Sweet Ancho Spice Rub.

Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs

It IS possible to make great ribs in the slow cooker - one's that aren't cooked to death, limp soggy slap you on the chin when you try to take a bite ribs. These are succulent, juicy and have the perfect "bite!" And they taste great!

Does it seem you wait and wait and wait for Summer and all of a sudden it’s just too dang hot? And as we’ve all heard, “It’s not the heat it’s the humidity.” What exactly IS that supposed to mean, anyway? Don’t ever say that to me. I’ll be cranky when it’s too hot and give you a “look.” You know the kind of look I mean…the one that says “What in the H E double hockey sticks are you talking about?!”
