Thanksgiving is the best holiday there is. Cooking, drinking, napping, football, eating, drinking, napping. A giant plate full of brown food...seconds, thirds. Leftovers, maybe.
This year will be a little different around my house, though. That big 'ol turkey that's front & center on the dining room table will be surrounded by plump, juicy, glistening baby back pork ribs. Go ahead, fork yourself a slice of buttery, peppery turkey...and grab a couple ribs, too. Might as well.
When the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, yes, they had turkey and corn and whatnot. But it's my hope, my belief, that delicious pigs frequented this area and the Pilgrims and Indians (Native Americans--this ain't India, man) smoked them with hickory and apple wood until the sweet & spicy pork melted in your mouth like meat candy. What a complement to your turkey, your dressing, taters, corn, green beans, and all that jazz. How can adding ribs to your Thanksgiving dinner be a bad thing?
Order a brined, seasoned, smoked, buttered turkey for $35 from me. Also order several racks of succulent, tender, sweet & spicy baby back ribs for $25/rack to show your family that you're not messing around this Thanksgiving.
