Enjoy Fabulous Memorial Day Menu!

Barbeque Baby Back Ribs Slow Cook

2 Slabs of Ribs

Basic Dry Rub (makes 1 cup)

½ cup of sweet paprika

2 tablespoons ground cumin

2 tablespoons mild chili powder

2 tablespoons ground black pepper

1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons of salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon dried mustard

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon of ground cloves or if you prefer ground allspice

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well, should yield one cup.

*With your hands, rub the mixture into the ribs. (For Best Results, Marinate ribs in dry rub mixture (in the refrigerator ) overnight if you can. Of at least a couple of hours before grilling.

*Heat your gas or barbeque grill to a temperature of 170 to 220 degrees, if you are going to cook ribs slow - next place your ribs over “indirect heat” (slow cooking process) and cook from 4 to 6 hours.

If you are not going to cook ribs slow the here is the suggested temperature medium heat 325°. Cook the ribs slowly for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, over medium heat (325° to 350°) and over a drip pan half filled with water. If in the first 30 minutes the ribs are browning too quickly, shut the grill vents.

Determining when pork ribs are done is a little tricky, but after 1-1/2 to 2 hours, you can be virtually certain that the ribs are fully cooked. However, the meat's color is not an indication of doneness. Smoke from the coals or from burning wood chips can turn the interior of the meat pink and leave you with the impression that it's not cooked. If you can move the rib bones back and forth without a lot of resistance after 1-1/2 to 2 hours, the meat is cooked.

I need your help in picking out a Book Cover

Hello All,

This is Author J. A. Jackson.

Yes, I’ve been working on the 2016 Release of my new book, the sequel to Lovers, Players & The Seducer titled:

Lovers, Players & The Revenge Game! So I’m checking in with Google Friends to see what you think.

Attached please see three book covers and let me know what you think! I appreciate you help.

Thanks everyone. P.S. Check the book blurb below and catch a glimpse of what this book is about!

Lovers, Players & The Revenge Game

By

J. A. Jackson

Last time, in J. A. Jackson’s steamy, romantic thriller Lovers, Players and The Seducer, the storm came…and went.

Back then, Nicholas La Cour played a very dangerous game of cat and mouse; one in which he involved his childhood friends, Kienan Egan and Quinn Rolandis. Even worse, he put his own sister, Lacey La Cour, right in the middle of that storm.

Everyone got swept away in the torrent of greed, lust and ruthless ambition. All except two rabid lovers….

After miraculously surviving a brutal accident which claimed his one true love, Quinn struggles with the loss, grapples with his troubled and sinful past and seeks much wanted closure and forgiveness from somewhere, and from anyone.

That healing and closure comes in the form of Maelle Mallard, an old friend Quinn was trying to forget, until now. After her own plans for a family and new life fall apart, Maelle then turns to Quinn to fulfill her. But he already has plans of his own to carry out. The biggest one is fulfilling his quest for vengeance.

Soon, Quinn and Maelle discover that their new paths are riddled with danger, passion, heartbreak and ultimately, consequences and repercussions.

Another storm is coming, but will Quinn and Maelle survive it? Find out in Jackson’s anticipated sequel, Lovers, Players & The Revenge Game. Winner takes all.
