Cook the Issue 2010: Sweet Chili and Root Beer Baby Back Ribs

By Pielove, member

June 27th, 2010

We had never grilled ribs before, so this was a bit of a challenge.  Also, we have a regular Weber charcoal grill, so maintaining temperature requires some finessing.  That said, this recipe turned out great.  We did one rack with the chili glaze and one rack with the chinese five-spice rub from this recipe:

Both sets of ribs came out great.  The chili glaze was a bit spicy for my daughter-- next time I will make a toned-down version.  Also, we do not like sweet, sticky glazes, so I used regular soy sauce instead of the sweet soy.  The glaze was a bit thin, but very flavorful.  Both my daughter and my husband are asking when we will make this again.  An excellent recipe.

I picked up the Grilling one last week and there are a bunch of recipes in it that I want to make. I too am getting to the end of what I am going to make from the current issues. I have been enjoying participating though! I have tried lots of new things. Thanks pielove for posting about Cook the Issue on egullet. I never would have noticed this challenge otherwise!

I sure wish the powers that be would toss in recipes from other issues to change things up a bit. I am just a little bored until the next issue comes out. With the weather so hot and my goal to keep things cooler in the kitchen, I would like to see more recipes for grilling out until things cool down around here. Don't suppose that we can talk anyone into adding recipes from other issues that might qualify for summer and hot weather recipes. Gazpacho would be the first thing on my list since all the veggies are so fresh this time of year.

Speaking of which, I will make the musky melon gazpacho recipe dinner one night in the next busy week of cooking. A CT member posted it way back when and it is fabulous! Posted: 6:52 am on June 29th
