“The aroma wafting through your neighborhood of barbecuing beef ribs, will be inviting enough to entice drivers to pull over to the curb. They will look for the "new barbecue-shack" in town. They may knock on your door when they have tracked you down. Serve with generous helpings of garlic-bread, mixed green salad, corn on the cob, condiments of your preference, and beverages of your choice. This barbecue sauce may be a bit spicy, so keep lots of chopped lettuce on hand to cut the heat. Preparation time does not include the overnight marinating process. This process is essential to allow all of the flavours to meld into a beautiful thing. The additional bonus is that if your barbecue plans are washed out by rain, you can still bake the beef ribs in your oven roaster, with sauce poured over.”
