The vinegar was not needed for Lamb. This recipe was not a good mix for good lamb. This distroyed the flavor of the lamb.-14 Apr 2002

by COOKER476

I made these about 1-1/2 mo. ago, pretty much according to the recipe, and my first review stated that they were SO sour that they were almost inedible. Again tonight I subbed thick-cut boneless pork loin chops (that were VERY lean) for the lamb, and subbed about 1/2 water for 1/2 of the required oil. What I did differently was to sub rosemary for tarragon and 2 TEASPOONS LIME juice for 2 Tbs. lemon juice. Added a healthy sprinkle of soy sauce to the mixture. Used a Zip-Lock bag to marinate the chops 2 hrs. in the fridge, and then let them come to room temp. for about 1 hr. before grilling them on high for 5 a side. Absolutely WONDERFUL this way. I could not give up on this recipe until I made it work for pork! Enjoy!!!-09 Apr 2005


Nice and tangy, and very sophisticated, without being at all pretentious. It was a little too acidic for my kid's tender palates... so next time they get the mac-n-cheese while my wife and I get all of the lamb to ourselves!! A keeper. Thanks Deb!-14 Jun 2002

BBQ Road Trip: American Traditions & Recipes

Region by region, we tracked down favorite recipes and tried-and-true tips from some of America's leading barbecue experts.

Related To:

Across the dusty plains of Texas and the shady hills of North Carolina, down the blues alleys of Memphis and the blustery streets of Chicago, barbecue is the great American constant — the beloved food of the people, by the people and for the people. Yet no two barbecues are exactly alike: Each region has its preferences and specialties, from sticky brown sugar-mopped ribs in Kansas City to tender slabs of beef brisket in Austin and vinegar-spiked pulled pork in Winston-Salem. You can crisscross the country following a delicious trail of smoked, spiced meat — or this summer you can get behind the grill and bring the road trip to your own backyard. To help, we’ve reached out to some of America’s leading barbecue experts for their favorite regional recipes and tried-and-true tips. All that’s left for you to do is start those fires!

Ray Lampe, aka “Dr. BBQ” competition barbecue judge spokesman for The Big Green Egg and author of Slow Fire, Ribs, Chops, Steaks, and Wings and more.

"The dry-rub ribs that Memphis has become known for really evolved by chance," explains Ray. According to local lore, they were first introduced in 1948 at a restaurant called the Rendezvous, which remains a Memphis culinary landmark to this day. After discovering an old coal chute in the restaurant's basement and getting a good deal on a shipment of ribs, the Rendezvous’ owner, Charlie Vargos, decided to expand his business into barbecue. Drawing on his Greek background, Charlie seasoned his meat with a distinctly Mediterranean-inflected rub, which included spices like coriander, oregano, allspice and mustard seed. The mixture was a hit and before long the style spread to other establishments around town. "Charlie didn't have the Internet to consult or experts for market research," says Ray. "He was just trying to sell some delicious ribs."

Serve it with: "If you want to get authentic, lots of folks in Memphis are crazy about poor-man's specials like smoked bologna or barbecue spaghetti, which is pasta tossed with half tomato and half barbecue sauce," says Ray. "And also plain-old white bread, of course."

Pro tip: "Salt and sugar are the building blocks of any good rub," says Ray. "You can play with the ratios, but half-and-half is always good place to start."

Elizabeth Karmel, founder of executive chef of Hill Country Barbecue Market in New York and Washington, D.C. and author of Taming the Flame and Soaked, Slathered and Seasoned: The Guide to Flavoring Food for the Grill.

"When I first started to learn about barbecue I was taught a rub that was full of lots of seasonings. But over time, as I started spending time with barbecue legends like Rick Schmidt of Kreuz's Market in Lockhart, I realized I'd been going about it all wrong," says Elizabeth. "In Texas, the old-timers season with only salt, pepper and just enough cayenne to turn the rub a gentle pink. That's the great thing about Texas barbecue: It's all about the meat, just dressed simply and kissed with smoke from indigenous wood like post oak."

Serve it with:
Beans and ice-cold Texan beer, like Lone Star or Shiner Bock.

Pro tip: Explains Elizabeth: "The one secret to success is starting with a whole untrimmed brisket. Unfortunately, those can be harder to find than you might imagine - many grocery meat departments have decided that Americans don't like fat, so they trim everything to death. But when you're cooking something for a long time you absolutely need that layer of fat to keep the meat moist. You can always trim off what's left after the brisket is done."

New England-Style Barbecued Fish.

New England-Style Barbecued Fish.

Chris Hart and Andy Husbands, authors of Wicked Good Barbecue and members of team iQUE, the first group of Northerners in barbecue history to win a World Championship.

"Summer is prime striped bass fishing season in New England," explain Chris and Andy. "So, each year when chef Chris Schlesinger, our friend and fellow barbecue fanatic, throws a big Fourth of July party, a freshly caught 30-50 pound striper is usually one of the centerpieces. We like to slather it with a lemon and herb mixture and stuff the cavity with big bunches of basil, tarragon and thyme before setting it over hickory wood. If you're on the West Coast you could do the same with a Pacific salmon or a big black bass, or if you're down south, a redfish would work fine. But there's nothing better than smoky whole fish just off the fire."

Serve it with: A drizzling of green, spicy rocket pesto and grilled corn dressed with cheese and chili powder.

Pro tip: "It's actually easier to gauge freshness when you're buying a whole fish than it is with fillets," says Andy. "Just remember three things: The eyes should be clear, not cloudy the gills should be bright red and, of course, it should have zero odor."

Adam Perry Lang, chef, restaurateur and barbecue fanatic founder of Daisy May's BBQ and author of Serious Barbecue, BBQ25 and, most recently, Charred and Scruffed.

"Kansas City-style ribs are known for their sweet, sticky sauce, but my goal is always to build layers of flavor," says Adam. Here, those layers include a piquant garlic marinade, a tangy cider vinegar mop, and a deeply savory spice rub bolstered by brown sugar, paprika, mustard and even hints of ginger. Only then comes the signature sauce. But be careful: "Barbecue sauce can burn quickly," Adam explains. "I avoid that by mixing in equal amounts of water with it. Then I brush it onto the ribs for the last 30 minutes of cooking, until it becomes a nice shiny glaze." This recipe calls for tender baby back ribs (aka loin back ribs), but you may also substitute spareribs, as long as you remember to add an additional 2 hours to your cook time.

Serve it with: Onion rings and a tangy green apple, cabbage and caraway cole slaw.

Pro tip: "One of my tricks is to use an herb brush for basting. They're easy to make: Just tie a bundle of sprigs onto the handle of a wooden spoon or dowel. Rosemary, thyme and sage are all great. The herbs add flavor to everything and give meat a subtle herbaceous overtone, the work of basting engages you and eventually the herbs can be a garnish.

Ardie Davis, founder of the American Royal International BBQ Sauce, Rub, and Baste Contest, and co-author of America's Best BBQ, The Kansas City Barbecue Society Cookbook and more.

"Chicago barbecue is known for two things: spicy rib tips and hot links," says Ardie. Two of the best places to eat them are both on the South Side: Lem's, where pitmaster James Lemon has been hard at work for 58 years, and Barbara Ann's, where an eye-popping homemade hot sauce keeps customers coming back for more. "Compared to the Texas version," explains Ardie, "Chicago hot links tend to be a bit bigger and milder. Rib tips are what's left over after you trim off the triangular part of a slab of ribs to even it out. Cut that into individual pieces and you've got rib tips," he says. "I prefer my sauce on the side otherwise the meat gets smothered, and I don't want to cover up that taste."

Serve it with: French fries. At Barbara Ann's orders are piled atop mounds of fries, which act as perfect receptacles for juice from the meat and the hot sauce.

Pro tip: "You could easily spend thousands on a big barbecue rig," says Ardie, "But I always ask myself: How much meat could I have bought for what I spent on this cooker? Instead, my standby is a plain-old kettle grill. You can get one for less than 100 bucks, they last for years and you can cook everything but a whole hog in one."

"A whole smoked pig is an opportunity to seriously party," says Zak. "That's what I love about barbecue - it's the most social way to cook, with everyone outside having a good time. I crave that relaxed atmosphere." Though it has similarities to a Hawaiian kalua pig, Zak's barbecue - shot through with dashes of chile, lime, ginger and fish sauce - is most inspired by the flavors of Southeast Asia, especially Malaysia. "In Asia, cooking outside over fire is not new," Zak explains. "But at Fatty 'Cue we try and play around and bring those flavors to barbecue made in the traditional offset-smoke American style. The goal is to just get the natural flavors out of the meat."

Serve it with: Go for something that counterbalances the rich fattiness of the pig. Zak suggests drizzling the chopped pork with a sauce made from fish sauce, palm sugar, rice vinegar and chopped chiles, and serving with kimchi, corn dressed with butter and lime, salad from the garden and big stacks of white bread.

Pro tip: When I'm making a whole hog, I look for an animal that is well marbled and has a good fat cap to it. I've cooked a large variety of breeds - Tamworth, Red Wattle, you name it. But I've never cooked a standard white conventional pig. Most people live close enough to farms these days that its possible to get it fairly locally. And if you're cooking a whole pig, it means you're dedicated - so don't skimp out on the sourcing, or you're shooting yourself in the foot before you even start.

A good Pinot Gris ― with crisp layers of lemon, herbs, and minerals over a creamy mouthfeel ― is a great foil for pasta laced with basil and cream. Our version can be on your table in just 15 minutes.

In spite of its name, Petite Sirah isn’t little, and it’s not Syrah. A hearty wine, often with big textures (it can have tannin in spades) and deep fruit, it’s a match for casual, big-flavored foods.

We love it with retro ground-beef chili piled onto Fritos, with all the fixings.

11 Perfect Sides to Serve with BBQ Ribs

These popular sides to go with barbecue ribs range from southern classics like mac and cheese and collard greens to lighter fare including crunchy slaw and an unexpected fruit-laden salad. Whatever you choose to serve with your ribs, just be sure sure to have plenty of barbecue sauce—and napkins—on hand.

Ribs 101 Best. Ribs. Ever. Ribs, whether baby back or spare (and whether grilled, smoked, or baked in the oven), are the kind of thing that demands total absorption: eyes down, both hands getting messy from all the aforementioned BBQ sauce, not coming up for air until that bone’s picked clean. When you do come up for air, though, you want something delicious to eat before tackling the next rib in the pile. Ribs are often tangy, sweet, and full of rich, delicious fat so there are certain sides that balance BBQ ribs particularly well acting almost like a reset for your tastebuds.

Behold, 11 of our favorite sides for ribs, from the light, crisp, and palate-cleansing to creamy, rich, and ultra decadent.

1. Slow Cooker Collard Greens

Collards are often cooked with smoked ham hocks, but smoked turkey drumsticks are a great substitute and yield more meat than ham hocks. Cleaning and trimming 5 pounds of greens is the hardest part of this recipe—after that, it’s easy. Get our Crock Pot Collard Greens recipe.

2. Classic Macaroni and Cheese

What’s nice about this recipe is its versatility. It works beautifully as both a creamy stovetop dish with any sort of mix-ins you like, and as a crunchy baked mac ‘n’ cheese sprinkled with panko breadcrumbs. Get our Classic Macaroni and Cheese recipe.

3. Herbed Potato Salad

Honestly, almost any potato salad is good with ribs, but the tangy herbed dressing (a shallot-and-Dijon vinaigrette with parsley, tarragon, and dill) is a nice change from the usual heavy mayo version and cuts through the richness of BBQ ribs like a knife. Get our Herbed Potato Salad recipe. (And find out which potatoes to use for potato salad too.)

4. Crispy Corn Fritters

Hush puppies by any other name do taste as sweet—as these summer corn fritters prove so well. Fresh kernels off the cob are folded into cornmeal batter with cayenne and scallions, then fried crisp and golden brown (but fluffy and tender inside). Drag them through the BBQ sauce on your plate for a swoon-worthy bite. Get our Crispy Corn Fritters recipe.

5. Baked Cheese Grits

For something easier but just as satisfying, quick-cooking grits combine with milk, sharp cheddar cheese, hot sauce, and eggs, then bake in a casserole dish that can go directly onto the table. When corn’s in season, try folding some fresh kernels into this dish too for pops of juicy sweetness. Get our Baked Cheese Grits recipe.

6. Corn with Basil Butter and Flaky Salt

Grilled corn on the cob is great as-is, but generously spread this herbed butter on top and sprinkle with flaky sea salt for a simple yet sophisticated dish that truly epitomizes summer. Get our Corn with Basil Butter and Flaky Salt recipe. (Or if you go with an Asian-influenced barbecue sauce for your ribs, try our Mirin and Soy Sauce Grilled Corn recipe on the side.)

7. Corn and Tomato Coleslaw

Green cabbage, fresh corn (a recurring theme for good reason), tart tomatillos, and cherry tomatoes: the perfect summer coleslaw recipe. A lime, garlic, and mustard dressing finish it off, along with a sprinkling of chopped cilantro. Get our Corn and Tomato Coleslaw recipe. (And if you like more spice, try our Lime and Jalapeño Coleslaw recipe.)

8. Spicy Jicama, Grapefruit, and Mango Salad

Out of the box, for sure, but this tart, cooling, crisp, and refreshing salad is the perfect go-with for rich pork and multi-layered BBQ sauce. Try it and you might just start a new summer grilling tradition. Get our Spicy Jicama, Grapefruit, and Mango Salad recipe.

9. Jalapeño-Corn-Beer Bread

Cornbread is the perfect foil for the richness and complexity of a stack of bones, but this spicy quick bread with pickled jalapeños is an interesting cornbread alternative. It has a dense texture that’s excellent for dipping in BBQ sauce. Get our Jalapeño-Corn-Beer Bread recipe.

10. French Green Bean Salad

With good, flavorful BBQ keeping the sides somewhat similar works well. This healthy French Green Bean Salad calles for blanched beans that get dressed up with a mustard and shallot vinnagrette. Get our French Green Bean Salad recipe.

11. Skordalia (Greek Potato Dip)

Francesco Sapienza (Lamalo)

This flavorful Greek potato dip, skordalia, calls for blanched russet potatoes blended with almonds, oil, raw garlic, bread, and spices. It’s absolute heaven and absolutely and works well both as a side or a dip (ease up on the almonds and oil for a side dish version). What’s more? The recipe comes from New York Medditerean outpost, Lamalo, who kindly shared their skordalia recipe in full. Try serving with some kabobs or simple lamb burgers with mint and feta, and if you do…please invite us. Get the Skordalia recipe.
