You’ll Want Dibs On These Ribs & Free Groceries For a Year

Grilling season is in full swing and Pork Be inspired is having their annual Dibs on my Ribs! recipe contest* where winning groceries for an entire YEAR is as simple as submitting your best recipe!

While I can certainly use free groceries for a year, I haven’t the time to come up with something super creative. I do, however, make some tasty ribs. Let me walk you through my process.


First, I marinate my ribs for 30 minutes in white wine and my favorite seasonings; Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning, onion salt, and Grill Mates Mesquite. My mother has always poured beer over her ribs and they always came out tender and juicy. I use white wine since I usually have it on hand for other dishes… it makes everything tastier.



I usually don’t smoke my ribs, but Pork® Be inspired® sent me a package full of grilling goodies that included a woodchip set and I was curious to try it. This of course adds a little extra time to my usual prep. I soaked a tray of Mesquite woodchips in water while the ribs marinated and prepped the grill with the woodchips per the instructions.


I like to add more seasoning to my ribs once I get them on the grill.


When I flip ’em, I add some more.


After the ribs are done cooking, I brush on some sauce… which varies. I just started making homemade sauce. It’s a family recipe and I’ve been sworn to secrecy. Shhh, don’t.tell.noooobo.dyyy!
