Midwesterners to Hope? Get it on!

Recommended Posts

Anyone on the fence about going down that weekend?  With the plant tour now on, this is a great opportunity, and doesn't come around very often....Sign up and go!  I'm planning on stopping in Memphis, and getting some of the best ribs on the planet from Corky's and Rendezvous.  If you've never had them, wow, these guys know how to do ribs...Memphis style.

So Jim, did you make to a Memphis rib joint on your trip?  How did it compare to Rodney's ribs?

 

I feasted at Rendezvous when I stayed overnight in Memphis several years ago.  Dang good ribs for certain!

Didn't make it into town to sit down for a meal, but I made a great score just outside of Memphis.  I stopped for gas on the way home, and just behind the station was a rather "local" looking grocery store...went in and was looking at the BBQ sauce and rubs, started talking with a man who then took me over to another section of the store and pointed out some of his favorites, and a relatively local rub that had just recently won a BBQ grand championship.  I tried three of them this past weekend when we had my parents in law over for dinner, and they were all outstanding, including the Rendezvous rub which I have loved for years.  The three were:

I may give that Rendezvous rub a try.  I smoke ribs (and brisket) fairly frequently, so I make my own rub.  Since I don't skimp on the amount of rub that I use, I can make my own much more economically.  I've been experimenting with rub recipes for several years with various levels of success, but I have one that I've settled on - a little sweet with a little heat.  Come to think of it, I think I'll smoke a couple of racks this weekend - maybe I'll throw on a pork loin too  :)
