Grand World Champion BBQ Baby Back Ribs - 2 Slabs

17th Street BBQ ships its famous barbecue nationwide on Goldbelly! These legendary baby back ribs crafted by “The Godfather of BBQ" may just be the best thing you ever eat. What makes them so good? Well for starters, each slab is smoked over apple and cherry wood for 5-7 hours after being sprinkled with 17th Street’s “Magic Dust” dry rub. Then they mop two light coats of their award-winning barbecue sauce right before they take them off the pit and finish them with another dash of Magic Dust.

Founded in Murphysboro, Illinois, in 1985, this Memphis-style barbecue joint from late pitmaster Mike Mills is legendary for its competition-quality ‘cue, which has been named the “Best Ribs in the U.S.” by Bon Appétit and “Best BBQ in America” by Travel & Leisure. 17th Street BBQ’s Memphis-style baby backs are slow-smoked over locally grown fruitwood for six hours after being sprinkled with 17th Street’s “Magic Dust” dry rub and brushed with two light coats of award-winning barbecue sauce.

More Details

This package serves 2-4 people and includes

  • 2 slabs of Apple City Grand World Champion Baby Back Ribs (each 12 bones)
  • 1 bottle of Award-WinningBBQ Sauce – Choose Original or “A Little Kick”
  • 1 “Magic Dust” Dry Rub

This is how Mike Mills describes his ribs: “The meat has a light pink-to-rosy color, a result only achieved by cooking with wood. The ribs are NOT over-smoked (so you can taste the spice, and the meat itself), nor do they fall off the bone. Ribs should have some “pull” to them, meaning some meat should stick to the bone when you tear them apart (if the meat falls off the bone, that means they are way overcooked).”
