rebecca gordon buttermilk lipstick Southern Recipes & How To's Easy Tailgate Recipes RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstickSmokin’ Sweet Bourbon-Mustard Ribs
makes 6 servings

2 cups hickory wood chunks
2 slabs baby back ribs
Sweet & Spicy Rub
1/2 cup creole mustard
Bourbon-Molasses Barbecue Sauce

Soak the wood chunks 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. Pat the Sweet & Spicy Rub liberally on both sides of the ribs. Slather the mustard over both sides of the ribs. Let stand 20 minutes. Place the ribs over indirect heat, about 225 to 275 degrees. Add the packet of wood chunks to the grill or smokerCheck the progress every 30 minutes just to be sure the side closest to the flame isn’t cooking too quickly. Rotate the ribs if necessary.

you’re looking for a pink smoke ring in the pork…
pinch the ribs w/ your tongs after 2 hours

they should be tender enough to give easily w/ a slight tug
this will take anywhere from 2 1/2 to 3 hours

Slather a 1/2 cup Bourbon-Molasses Barbecue Sauce on the ribs before removing from the grill grate. Cover with the lid & cook for 10 minutes. Remove the ribs & let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

makes 16 bars

1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp bourbon
1 1/3 cups ap flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate morsels, chopped
Bourbon Brownie Batter

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line the bottom & sides of a 8-inch baking pan with foil, allowing 2-inches to extend over the sides. Lightly grease the foil & set aside. Cream the butter & the brown sugar in an electric stand mixer on Medium speed until light & airy, about 5 minutes. Add the egg & the bourbon, blending just until the yolk disappears. Whisk together the flour, the baking soda & the salt. Add to the butter mixture & blend on Low speed just until combined. Stir in the chopped chocolate morsels. Prepare the Bourbon Brownie Batter & pour into the prepared pan. Spoon the cookie dough on top of the brownie batter. Bake for 40 to 43 minutes or until set. Expect a few moist crumbs when tested with a wooden pick the outer edges will be more set & the center a tad more fudgy…
something for everyone. Cool completely. Lift the brownies from the pan using the foil as handles. Cut into bars.

How To Make Football Bunting By Rebecca Gordon Buttermilk Lipstick Game Day Hostess Tide & Tigers Today Tailgating Philly Cheesesteak Sliders Classic Sideline Snack Mix Football NFL Tailgate Party Snacks Food AppetizersHow To Make Brookies

Two batters calls for a streamlined list of ingredients & techniques.
Follow these tips for success in your own kitchen.

The 411

The Cookie Dough

A stand mixer is the perfect choice for mixing this cookie dough.

You will think there is too much cookie dough to cover the top of the brownie batter. Not so. Pinch pieces of dough & generously cover the surface. This bakes up like a dream.

The Brownie Batter

Cocoa powder eliminates the need to chop & melt chocolate.

Go ahead & melt the butter in the microwave using a glass bowl. It can cool down a bit while preparing the cookie dough.

I used a rubber spatula to blend all of the ingredients together. The batter will appear to be a touch skimpy looking in the baking pan. Proceed as directed. Everything bakes beautifully.

The Substitution

You can omit the bourbon for a more family-friendly version. Substitute 1 Tbsp of pure vanilla extract in the cookie dough. Replace the bourbon with either coffee or water in the brownie batter.

The Oven Temperature

A reduced temp allowed everything to set just so.
No burned or crisp edges here.

The Slicing Technique

So much depends upon how pretty a bar cookie looks. Neat & tidy cuts can be yours. Use a a sharp chef’s knife & cut straight down the center of the brookies. It will take two cuts.

The Rinse & Repeat

The most important thing to do is to wipe the knife clean in between the cuts. Run it under hot water & dry thoroughly… Between each cut. Cut each half in half & continue until you have a total of 16 squares.

The Storing

Place the cut bars in an air tight container. Store these beauties at room temp.
