Grillmaster Raichlen (The Barbecue Bible; etc.) believes "[t]he rib is surely the most perfect morsel of meat known to man. Most of the world's great food cultures back me on this." To wit, he points to the gastronomy of Argentina, Brazil, Italy, China, Korea and, of course, America. Yet many of the people who attend Raichlen's Barbecue University tell him the thought of cooking ribs intimidates them. While the task isn't complicated, Raichlen admits, a solid grasp of technique, tradition, lore and science can help anyone prepare "the perfect bones." In his casual, friendly manner, Raichlen takes readers through the ins and outs of ribs, with anatomy lessons explaining the difference between various cuts of ribs (like baby backs and rib tips) and instructions on trimming and peeling; seasoning or marinating; and mopping and saucing. He covers direct grilling, smoke-roasting, smoking and spit-roasting (and their variations), with advice on which kinds of ribs are best suited to each method. After an overview of tools and accessories, it's on to the 75 recipes in all their carnivorous glory. From First-Timer's Ribs ("the foolproof recipe that gives you competition-quality bones every time") to Grandpa's Barbecued Pastramied Short Ribs, Raichlen's got ribs—as well as all the necessary sides and sauces—covered. (Apr. 24)

So I bought Raichlen's book, hoping that he would make good on his promise that he would teach me how to make good barbeque ribs without fail. When the book arrived (from Amazon), I went straight to his "The One Rib Recipe Everyone should know."
After a quick trip to the store to get a couple of missing ingredients needed for his dry rub and sauce, I got down to business. The results? My oh my oh my! Better than I have ever prepared on my best day. Better than I have ever eaten at any rib joint. The delicious aromas wafting from my smoker suggested that something wonderful was happening. The sauce, the dry rub, the recommended procedure for cooking them all came together to make perfection!
About the sauce, I've made several barbeque sauces before, but his was the first one I made that had a hearty dose of lemon zest and lemon juice. Did that ever work! Tangy and sweet and flavorful. His dry rub mixture was also excellent.
There are 99 other rib recipes in this book, and most of them look really intersting. But the centerpiece recipe, the "rib recipe that everyone should know", is worth the price of the book alone. It's enough to turn you into a backyard 'cue pro, the envy of mere amateur tong wielders.
One of the best things about reading this book is that it helped me to further understand how Rib-recipes are designed. I have now successfully made up my own recipes and really enjoyed the results! Many recipes have common ingredients and it was a matter of trial and error to recombine them until something new was created. Following recipes is good, making up your own is better!
