Arguably the Best Ribs Ever

Here's a great recipe for BBQ ribs. Try them, and while you're at it, read the story below!

2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. liquid smoke
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 c. chunky salsa
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. minced garlic
Country Style Spare Ribs

Combine all ingredients, mixing well. Put ribs in pan and pour HALF of the sauce over ribs. Cover tightly with foil. Bake at 350 for 3-4 hours, or until tender. About 30 minutes before serving, drain juices and put a fresh coat of sauce (reserving some for serving) on them. Do not cover, and bake for 15 more minutes until sauce has glazed. Serve with more of the sauce.

Now for the story....

At the risk of putting myself virtually out there for all to see, I just had to shout out that I've officially met Ronnie. Who is Ronnie, you ask? Only one of the best BBQ'ers around. We heard about Ronnie from a The Best Thing I Ever Ate episode on the Food Network (which happens to be my favorite channel). Both me and my man love us some ribs, so we went and tried it, and Ronnie was there, so we got a picture with the happiest BBQ man around. Great ribs. We were not disappointed. Really, quite delicious. And it didn't bother us one bit that the restaurant is literally a trailer parked in an abandoned gas station parking lot in Shockhoe Bottom (downtown Richmond, VA). The side dishes? Well, not my favorite, tasted sort of like the same thing you could get at any grocery deli, but the ribs - WOW.

Mine (ok, recipe is from my sister's mother-in-law) are better. Try them.

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
