Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Today we're trying something new.

We have company coming for supper, a treat for us, after months of isolation. As family -- Himself's brother and SIL, recently moved to town -- they're in our bubble.

We now have a firepit in our garden, and Himself is forever banging on about outdoor cookery. So today we will do some.

There are four racks of back ribs, but room for only two in the barbecue. So two will be cooked Chinese-style in the Instant Pot, sauced with an exotic sticky concoction from a New York Times recipe, and finished on the grill over the firepit. Himself will be in charge of that, since he has long arms and tolerates heat far better than I do. He likes sitting in a lawn chair with a beer and a pair of tongs.

The other racks will be smoke-cooked in the barbecue with a dry rub. I have done this before, so no drama (I hope).

I will also make cornbread in a skillet (in the house, I'm not crazy). And salad, because nutrition.

It's stonking hot today in Perth County, so outdoor cookery is a Good Thing. Let's hope we don't get that thunderstorm Environment Canada is teasing us with.
