makes 6 appetizer servings

Trick Play

The barbecue sauce from a Tuscaloosa landmark, Dreamland, delivers a shot of pungent flavor to balance the concentrated southern nectar-based glaze.

1 1/2 cups hickory wood chips
1 {3-lb} slab St. Louis-style or baby back ribs
Bourbon Chipotle-Thyme Rub
Charcoal
Bourbon & Cherry Coke Glaze
Dreamland Barbecue Sauce

Soak the wood chips in water for about 30 minutes. Drain. Place in heavy-duty foil & make a packet. Poke a few holes in the foil. Pull the thin membrane from the backside of the ribs. Slather the Bourbon Chipotle-Thyme Rub liberally on both sides of the ribs. Let stand 20 minutes. 

Build a fire with the charcoal & push it over to one side of the grill. Add the packet of wood chips. Top with the grill grate. Place the ribs over the empty side to utilize an indirect heat cooking method. Top with the lid & adjust the vents in order to maintain a temperature between 225 to 275 degrees. Cook the ribs over indirect heat 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 185 to 190 degrees. You’re looking for a pink smoke ring in the pork. Check the progress every 30 minutes. Be sure the side closest to the heat isn’t cooking too quickly. Rotate the ribs if necessary. Meanwhile, prepare the Bourbon & Cherry Coke Glaze. Before removing from the grill grate, slather the ribs with the Bourbon & Cherry Coke Glaze. Cover with the lid & cook for 10 minutes. Remove the ribs & let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with additional barbecue sauce, if desired. 

The Extra Point

Follow the basic fundamentals to prepare the ribs but feel free to experiment with different herbs, spices & glazes.

makes about 2/3 cup

Trick Play

Prepare this concentrated finishing sauce while the ribs are on the smoker.
Adding a smidgen of liquor at the end of the cooking time intensifies the bourbon flavor beautifully.

1 {7.5-oz} can co-cola
1/2 cup cherry preserves
1/4 cup Dreamland Barbecue Sauce
3 Tbsp plus 2 tsp Kentucky bourbon

Cook the co-cola in a small saucepan over Medium-High heat for 15 minutes or until reduced by 2/3. Pull the pan away from the stove eye. Add the preserves, the barbecue sauce and 3 Tbsp bourbon & bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to Medium & cook, stirring occasionally, 12 to 15 minutes, or until thickened to the consistency of pancake syrup. Remove from the heat & stir in the remaining 2 tsp bourbon. Use as directed.

The Extra Point

Substitute blackberry preserves for the cherry preserves in an equally lovely option. Stir in a smattering of fresh thyme leaves to move up quickly in tasteful BCS tailgating rankings.

12 hard-cooked eggs
5 to 6 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp prepared horseradish
1/4 tsp table salt
Paprika & freshly ground pepper

Cut the eggs in half & remove the yolks. Mash the yolks well in a medium bowl with a fork. Whip in the mayonnaise & the mustard with a fork. Stir in the horseradish & the salt. Fill a disposable pastry bag with the yolk mixture. Snip the end of the bag about an inch from the bottom. Fill the egg white halves with the mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Sprinkle with paprika & pepper just before serving.

makes 8 servings

Trick Play

A nut studded shortbread crust is topped with layers of no-bake cheesecake filling, chocolate pudding & sweetened whipped cream. For a stunning presentation, sprinkle the pie with toasted pecans & a chopped milk chocolate candy bar just before serving.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp powdered sugar, divided
1/2 cup softened butter
1 {8-oz} package cream cheese, softened
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp sour cream
Chocolate Pastry Cream
1 cup whipping cream
Garnishes: Toasted chopped pecans & chopped milk chocolate

Combine the flour, the chopped pecans & 1/4 cup powdered sugar in a small bowl. Cut in the butter with a fork. Toss the mixture through your fingers until a crumbly dough forms. Press the dough evenly into a lightly greased 9-inch pie plate. Freeze the crust for 15 minutes.
 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the crust on a baking sheet & lightly grease the dough with cooking spray. Line the dough with parchment paper & fill with dried beans. Bake 10 minutes. Carefully remove the dried beans and return the pie plate to the oven. Bake an additional 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove the crust from the oven & cool completely. Beat the cream cheese, 1/2 cup powdered sugar & the vanilla with an electric mixer until blended. Fold in the sour cream with a rubber spatula. Spread the mixture into the crust. Chill 30 minutes.

Prepare the Chocolate Pastry Cream. Spoon the mixture into a bowl & place plastic wrap directly on the surface. Let stand 5 minutes. Pour the warm chocolate filling over the cream cheese mixture. Place plastic wrap directly on the surface & chill at least 8 hours. Beat the cream & the remaining 2 Tbsp powdered sugar with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Dollop over the Chocolate Pastry Cream just before serving. Garnish with toasted pecans & chocolate.

How To Make Smoked Ribs

Smoky pulled pork, ribs, chicken & everything in between essentially utilizes an indirect heat process that involves wood. Whether it’s used to build & maintain the fire or simply added with charcoal to enhance the flavor of the foods you’ll be preparing, the type of wood used acts to provide that iconic flavor we love. Follow these tips & get ready to make your best barbecue to date.

The most important step when preparing a slab of ribs is being certain the thin membrane on the backside of the ribs is removed. If it is left unattended to, all of your time & effort will be lost as the ribs will have a tough bite to them. Do not skip this procedure. It isn’t difficult & takes less than five minutes to prep the ribs properly. Turn the ribs to the backside & place the slab on a flat surface. Usually the butcher makes a few small cuts indicating that the prep work should be attended to. Use your finger to loosen it from the slab. It should begin to pull away in one piece. Keeping pulling the membrane until the entire slab has been attended to. Do not pull away anymore than this one section or the ribs may begin to fall apart. Once the membrane has been completely removed, follow the recipe instructions to proceed with seasoning them & placing them on the grill or smoker for cooking. Game Day Provisions 101: Bourbon & Cherry Coke Ribs offers a visual tutorial of this important procedure.
