Memorial Day has become one of the most popular days to grill. Check out these recipes for a cookout that your family and friends will never forget.
Baby Back Ribs
Ribs are always a hit at any barbeque, but there are ways to make sure yours are the best. A great way to ensure fantastic flavor is a dry brine. The day before you grill, prepare your ribs with a dry seasoning mixture of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and other spices you like. Trim the silver skin off of the ribs and season the whole rack, top and bottom. Let the ribs sit in the refrigerator overnight so the dry rub really flavors the meat. The next day, put the ribs on the grill. Place them on the top rack if you have one. You can also start them in the oven on a low temperature, then transfer them to the grill. Don’t forget to brush them with your favorite barbeque sauce for some extra flavor everyone will love.
One of the best sides at any barbeque is coleslaw, and it is very easy to make. You can purchase a coleslaw mix, or chop up some cabbage and carrots. Next, mix together some mayo, or your favorite creamy salad dressing, with some sugar and white vinegar. Combine your vegetables and your dressing and place in the refrigerator a couple hours before you plan to eat. This will allow the flavors to mix in and make the coleslaw that much better!
The perfect way to end your cookout is with a delicious peach cobbler. You can use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches. Mix your peaches with some cinnamon, sugar, and corn starch to thicken, then place them in a casserole dish. Top off with biscuit dough, homemade or store bought is perfectly fine. Before you place the dish in the oven, sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar over top. Bake until the biscuits are golden brown and crispy. Serve with some ice cream and watch your family and friends as they enjoy a great dessert.
