After a few winter months hibernating, our A New Turn In The South cookbook club decided it was about time to eat together again. Having celebrated this cookbook together over three or four dinner parties so far, we still have some recipes to try. My husband Grant , however, really wanted to make his special smoked ribs so our cookbook party took on a few new turns as he decided to go all rogue. He only makes these a couple times a year but he has this recipe nailed. I don’t think I’ve ever shared it before but with grilling season sneaking up on us, it seemed a good time.
