    Went to my Aunt's for a family BBQ and had some grilled steak, grilled chicken and some potato salad. I also had quite a bit on pineapple.

    A Bavarian friend was over and made us honest-to-goodness home made wienerschnitzel. It was wonderful and, much to my surprise, no one "wiener" was to be found in the entire dish. :rommie:

    I made ribs tonight. Bobby Flay recommended pureed chipotle peppers, honey, with salt and pepper instead of the standard bbq sauce. I painted on a thin coat about every 15 minutes during cooking. I also placed a pie pan full of beer under the grill grate. The ribs came out sweet and spicy and were quite moist thanks to the beer. I'm keeping that recipe.
    I also grilled some corn on the cob and made some buttermilk biscuts. I love cooking on 3 day weekends!

    What a coincidence: I also made BBQ Babyback ribs, with cole slaw and grilled corn on the cob. Good choices. :techman:

    That sauce sounds intriguing. I may have to give that a try next time.

    Oh, on my ribs I used a spice rub and marinate them in BBQ sauce overnight, then pre-cook them on very low heat for a couple of hours in a covered pan with Guinness; serves a similar purpose to your technique.

    ^^^ Nice! Ribs are the best aren't they? I only had Fat Tire on hand, but I bet the Guinness added a little something special.

    Fat Tire would definitely be good. I usually use whatever I have on hand, but I have to admit that Guinness is my favorite for this use. I actually hid a couple away earlier in the weekend just so I'd have them for the ribs yesterday. :rofl:
