Baby Back Ribs with Redskin Potato Salad

Postby Redskin in Canada » Tue Sep 27, 2005 8:58 am

In case you have not noticed, we have a new tailgate recipe in the main page: Baby Back Ribs with Redskin Potato Salad

Cooking is one of my favourite activities. I collect cookbooks from different cuisines and use them. After the Skins and fly-fishing, cooking is my thing (and I do it far more often than the other two).

It is obviously different to cook for a tailgate than it is for a BBQ meal! As a cook, I think that the recipe has several excellent tips. Particularly cooking the foil-wrapped ribs SLOW to keep them tender and juicy.

I am not a fan of pre-cooking. But it surely saves time when you want to do is drink and eat as opposed to cook with all the time in the world.

The recipe is great but it does not say anything about the BBQ sauce, which in my view is one of the best parts. Everybody has their own "secret" recipe. I like mine spicy and smoky, and instead of water (water???!!!) I thin my sauce with beer or another delicious alcoholic beverage (Whiskey and Rum work great).

Any recipes for good BBQ sauces out there? If you show me yours I -might- show you some of mine. :lol:

I'll definately paying attention and taking notes.

I want to learn how to kick and especially grill. I attempted to cook some ribs and I was scared to eat them because I had never done it b-4 and I wasn't sure if I was doing it right.

I didn't die so I must be on the right track! :twisted:

C'mon, there's lots of people here that like to cook (or probably moreso like to eat quality food).


I'll even give you my latest simple tailgate recipe. Anyone can do it in 5 minutes of prep time and it's cheap.


Wrap a spoonful of thawed 100 count shrimp and some shredded or crumbled cheese (mix it up with bleu, sharp cheddar or pepper jack) with one thinly sliced piece of smoked turkey breast and one normally sliced slab of ham.

Toothpick it together and bake for 15 minutes or so then refrigerate until ready to leave.

Toss them on the grill just long enough to warm and serve on a hot dog roll with an avocado/chipolte sauce, which is simply throwing an avocado, a papaya and two chilpoltes in a blender with one shot of Captain Morgan's and a half a beer.

My favourite recipe is a combination of tomato sauce, molasses, Jamaican Jerk marinade, Jamaican Jerk sauce, and Demerara Rum. It is a bit spicy, only mildly hot, and delicious.

I have to cook that for you sometime people.

There are a few other ingredients (including some ground spice wood to give it a smokey flavour) and cooking methods (slow cooking, etc) but you will be 85% OK with that PLUS the cooking method described in the exclusive article to avoid any -BURNING- the ribs and the sauce (which spoils everything).

i could have done an entire article on the bbq sauce alone. thats why i left it at "your favorite bbq sauce". ;) personally i don't really have a fav, i usually try to do something new everytime i make bbq sauce. there's so many different versions of it, i never get bored.

Sounds good, but as for the BBQ sauce...

Mushrooms are a fungus, don't put them in your mouth, haha.

One of my favorite/easy things to make is mini cheeseburgers. So easy, just take whatever ammount of ground beef you want, flatten it out on a large area, season it and fold it over and smush into a big square (more or less) then cut it up into even, little sqares (2 or 3 square inches?) then you've got a bunch of easily prepared mini burgers.

Buy a bag of dinner rolls from your local supermarket and apply a thin layer of mayo to each side of the roll (so the juice from the burgers doesn't seep through and get them soggy.

Then serve a big platter of burgers with some sliced cheese on the side and whatever other condiments you want.

It's exactly what it sounds like it should be.


They condense smoke, usually from hickory chips, into liquid form, strain it, then bottle it.


It tastes like smoked tar straight from the bottle, but the right amount really adds to a dish.


Get a little at your grocery store, it's usually with the other condiments and sauces. Get the small bottle to start, because a little goes a long way.

It's good stuff. I use it quite often. Put a dash on your burgers when you grill or fry. Also good to put in the water when you boil potatoes or rice. Excellent with homemade bbq sauce. The possibilities are endless. =P~

Liquid Smoke is great with a lot of things but as curveball said... learn to use it first, and use it in moderation.

I've recently come into the knowledge that SERIOUS hot dog eaters will boil or steam their hot dogs BEFORE char broiling them... so i thought... what a great opportunity to infuse some smoke flavor... so now I boil the hot dog in some water with about half a teaspoon of liquid smoke... let it boil until the hot dog is cooked and then take those bad boys to the grill.

Mmmmmmm....

Ok. So if you cook them by boiling them are you just taking them to the grill to reheat them at a later time?
