Well come on up to my house and I'll show ya. If your ribs are like Carolina ribs, I was told by my cousin, who used my rib cooking technique and recipe, that her North Carolina guests ate the ribs and told her they were the best they'd ever eaten, anywhere. True story, even if it did make my head swell a bit.
That being said, like with the beans, there are so many great rib cooking techniques, and recipes out there, I would be a fool to say that mine were the best. But I'll let other people say that all day long.
One other thing, I've never been the guy who makes food like my parents did, just because that's the way its always been done. I figure, so they've been smoking ribs the same way in these parts for generations. To me, they've become stagant.
I'm the re-inventor, the experimenter, the engineer of food recipes. But like everyone else, I stand on the shoulders of some pretty great cooks before me, and use what they could give me, then expand upon that. Sometimes I can't improve on a great recipe. But sometimes I can.
I had to throw out that bit about comming up to the U.P. to learn how to cook ribs. I know you're a great cook in your own right. I couldn't let your head get too big. People always have to help me fit into my existing hats too.
I like to say to people that I get better looking every day. So if I look like this now, just think how strange I must have looked a couple of years back.
Poking fun is what I do, besides making the best ribs in the U.S.A.
Oh, wait, I didn't say that. It was my evil twin.
