I was raised on baby back ribs and smoked brisket drenched in warm, homemade, Texas-style barbecue sauce. IMHO, it’s not a BBQ without it. It’s wet, sweet, with a hint of heat, and guaranteed to steal the spotlight at your next cookout. Add a side of grilled corn with medicated chili-lime butter, and you’ve got a menu that’ll knock everyone’s socks off.
Chef’s Note: Always remember to label your medicated items clearly and keep away from children at all times. These dishes are designed to be low-dose, but as with all edibles, start with a single serving and wait 30-60 minutes for full effects before you have a second.
