Grill-finished BBQ Ribs for the 4th of July
Don’t have a smoker but still want to cook up some delicious barbecue ribs tomorrow? Duh, just click play.
Now, ribs - and BBQ in particular - are a very personal dish for a lot of cooks. Everyone’s got their own method. We’re not here to say one’s better than the other, just that we like this method and recipe because it’s easy and quick. You do most of the cooking before your party starts, so you’re not spending your 4th of July afternoon manning the grill instead of boozing up with your friends and family.
What are you making for the 4th of July?
My backyard right now: we turned the charcoal grill into a 650 degree pizza oven.

We turned the charcoal grill into a 650º pizza oven. That’s a white pizza with local mozzarella, kale and garlic from our CSA, and local cherry tomatoes. Om nom nom.
Cheers to the beginning of grill season and happy Memorial Day!
Yes, we are shamelessly reblogging our own post…to wish you all a happy Memorial Day and an AWESOME summer!
If you’re in New York this weekend and looking for some awesome Memorial Day plans, then you have got to check out Brewers PicNYC.
Created by my good pal Jimmy Carbone, of famed East Village brewpub Jimmy’s No. 43 and the man behind last summer’s epic Pig Island and a co-host of last year’s Meatopia (click through for our episode on Meatopia and brewing beer with our beloved Sixpoint Craft Ales), Brewers PicNYC is going to be a fun, affordable BBQ party on beautiful Governor’s Island.
The party starts on Sunday at noon with free round-trip ferries to the Island from both Manhattan and Brooklyn, and continues on Monday. You can buy tickets for as little as $15; beer and food (see the vendor lists below) are sold a la carte or are included in various ticket packages. Bonus: a portion of the proceeds goes to Added Value Farms, a sustainable farm on Governor’s Island.
We’ll be stuffing our faces for America all day on Monday, so if you come to the Brewers PicNYC (and you seriously should) make sure you say hi to us. Because we love you, that’s why!
