How To Not Heat Up The Kitchen In The Summer!

Basically, start with a slab of ribs, in a pan covered in tinfoil.
And a large grill, heated up to 350 degrees.
Cook slab of ribs slowly, OUTSIDE, away from your house so the house doesn't heat up with excess heat. This is especially important if you live in Florida and it is now getting to be 99 in the shade.
Most important is your grill must have a temperature gauge. That will help you cook the ribs at the right temp so they don't dry out.
After the ribs have cooked through, take them off the pan and lay them out on the grill to finish.
Lightly brush on a coating of your favorite BBQ sauce. I say lightly because if you put on too much it will burn and burnt ribs taste like ass. Major BBQ fail!
Make sure you make some sides to go with your ribs, (that cooked outside and not in the house thus heating up your home to uncomfortable sauna like temperatures). BBQ beans are a good choice. So is cole slaw, potato salad, fries, and garlic toast.
And there you have it! Dinner cooked outside, a home that didn't get to 85 degrees at 5pm, and an easy clean up to boot!

(also, a photo post is waaaaaay easy to do when you are stuffed full of BBQ.)

You don't boil your ribs first? Interesting...

And are those hush puppies? I LOVE hush puppies!

That looks delicious!

RUSS: It's a summer crowd pleaser!

FINN: No boiling. It has the capacity to toughen up the meat. Also, those are fried mushrooms. I loves me some fried mushrooms.

HOOSIERGIRL: Got the grill at Wall to Wall Mart one year as a Father's Day gift for HHH.

KARENSUGARPANTS: BBQ is an AWESOME breakfast. Many a morning I have had BBQ and eggs.
