Hello everyone,
The 'detox' I was doing has slowly been ending for the past couple of days,
but two nights ago, with the consumption of BBQ Ribs for dinner,
the detox has officially ended for good.

Though I rather enjoyed being a vegetarian/sort-of-vegan for the past 2 or 3 weeks,
the fact that I enjoyed eating these ribs so, incredibly, much has confirmed that I could never become fully vegetarian.  I mean, seriously, these ribs were SOOO good!!

So, this is the Meadowlark Trio's signature ribs.

The Meadowlark Trio Signature Ribs

Aluminum foil
1 rack of ribs
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
(or, if you want to feel really fancy, buy 2 different ones and mix them together!  we always do this  haha)

Dry Rub
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 to 2 tsps of many different kinds of spices.
(the spices change for us every time, depending on what we have in our pantry,
but this time they were,
garlic pepper, lemon pepper, black pepper, onion powder, cumin, paprika, red pepper powder, Italian seasoning, and turmeric.)

1. Mix together all of the ingredients for the dry rub, and set aside.
2. Cut the rack of ribs into four similarly sized sections.
3. Tear 4 large pieces of aluminum foil (enough to wrap around one quartered section of the ribs) and place the ribs on the foil.
4. Apply dry rub to both sides of the ribs and pat /rub them in.

5. Apply the BBQ sauce generously to both sides of the ribs.
6. Wrap the ribs completely in foil, and wrap it again in a different piece of foil.
7. Refrigerate for a couple of hours, or over night.
8. Preheat the oven to 250, and put the ribs in for 3.5 hours, flipping them after 2 hours.
9. Take the ribs out of the foil (be very careful, they're really hot!) and apply more BBQ sauce.
10. Broil the ribs for 15-20 minutes until the BBQ sauce becomes a little crusty.
11. ENJOY!!!  Perhaps with some roasted veggies,,, just to feel a bit better about eating a balanced meal ;)

Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
