    A Different Sort Of Slab

    LOW AND SLOW
    Don't Insult The Pig
    eat as is or finish otherwise
    WALLPAPER:   PORK SPARE RIBS
    -------
    .. We're trapped in the neighborhood merry go round. We cook. You cook. They cook. We all eat. It's the celebration of a few days without snow in what passes for Spring in the high country.
    .. The neighbors enjoy the taste of pork - not BBQ sauce per se. Sauce in our part of the neighborhood is served alongside the meat. It's not used to disguise poor cooking technique or shoddy cuts of meat. They have told us that meat drenched in oceans of sauce is an insult to the animal and the cook.
    .. Recipe:
         RUB,
              - Hungarian Sweet Paprika.
              - Spanish Smoked Paprika,
              - Minced Garlic,
              - Kosher Salt.
              - Fresh Ground Black Pepper,
              - Fresh Prepared Dry Mustard,
              - Fresh Ground Cumin,
              - Dark Brown Sugar,
              - (combine in proportions to taste.)

         THE PROCEDURE,
              - Remove membrane,
              - Pierce rib meat with fork, (many times - both sides,)

              - Place slab, bones down, on large sheet of aluminum foil,
              - Add 1/2 cup of beer - or Dr. Pepper, or  Coca Cola, (under slab,)
              - Wrap tightly in aluminum foil, (use lots of foil in layers,)
              - Park package in refrigerator for no less than  12 hours,
              - Place on foil lined baking sheet,
