It’s summer and when I think of summer I think of cooking out on the grill and cold iced tea. One of our favorite things to cook on the grill is baby back ribs. In my completely unbiased humble opinion my husband has a pretty great rib recipe, especially for a New England boy.

When I found out that Walmart had a $1.00 off coupon for Farmland All Natural ribs we decided that it was a perfect night for a barbecue.

We had some other things to pick up at Walmart as well so we brought the coupon and, with mouths already watering, went shopping for dinner.

To start off the ribs we first boil them in beer and spices to infuse some flavor into the meat. We used a 32oz Mexican beer and Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, and onion powder for our seasonings. (recipe card is below)

Chop the ribs in thirds to fit them in your pot. Pour in your beer and spices then cover the rest of the way with water and allow to simmer until the marrow is brown; about 20 minutes.

Once the marrow of the ribs is about this color then they are done. Remove them from the pot and prepare them for the grill.

Once the grill is hot put the ribs on and slather ’em up with barbecue sauce. We make our own (recipe card is below). We prefer to use our charcoal grill with mesquite charcoal for ribs but we have used our gas grill and it works just fine, too. We also grilled our Buffalo wings instead of frying them to make them a little healthier. You would never know that they weren’t fried!

Serve with Buffalo wings and my absolute favorite salad ever, cucumber & tomato salad with mint.

This was my first time trying raised in the USA Farmland ribs and will definitely be buying them again! Meat that is free from hormones, steroids, artificial ingredients and preservatives is very important to my family. I also noticed that they have an all natural tenderloin that we will be sure to try on the grill this summer.
