Memphis Style Ribs - 2 Slabs + Sauce + Rub

Central BBQ ships its famous barbecue nationwide on Goldbelly! Central BBQ marinades meaty loin back ribs with their special Rib Rub overnight and then slowly smokes them over a blend of hickory and pecan wood. Central BBQ’s Memphis-style dry spice features paprika, salt, and brown sugar, which creates a beautiful charred bark around the exterior, sealing in moisture and adding tons of flavor. Co-owner Craig Blondis calls them, the “Cadillac of ribs.” Featured on Food Network, this Memphis-style BBQ joint owned by former BBQ competitors serves the same succulent, perfectly charred pork awarded by top contest judges around the country.

Central BBQ has perfected the art of Memphis-style barbecue. Opened in 2002 by Craig Blondis and Roger Sapp, former regional BBQ competitors, Memphis’ Central BBQ serves the same perfectly charred, pit-smoked slabs of meat they once presented to judges. The key to their award-winning pork is to forgo the sauce and let the pork shine by encasing it in a charred bark that keeps the meat juicy and extremely flavorful.

Finally, with the --"I don't know how they do it"--efforts of Team Goldbelly, we got to enjoy some Memphis-style ribs and pulled pork from Central BBQ. It was a real treat this Labor Day weekend. The food was mighty tasty. There was more than enough for me and my wife. We're still talking about that smokey flavor. Thank you goes out to the Goldbelly Team and the Central BBQ chefs.
Dennis B. - Munising, MI
In these difficult times, our order from Central BBQ arrived at our home safe and sound. Goldbelly got us connected to some delicious Memphis-style ribs and pulled pork. The smokey flavor was excellent. The proportions were generous. The sauce and seasoning added just the right touch of flavor. Thank you Central BBQ and Goldbelly team.

It will be a taste of home. 😁❤️🙏👍

Michael M. - Bourbonnais, IL
Fast delivery, excellent package, BBQ Meat arrived still frozen in vacuum seal packs. Thawed one out and heated up easily, it smells delicious and tastes even better. Gently smoked for a delicious flavor without being "too smoked", pork was fabulous, very moist, tender, mouth watering good. The Central BBQ Sauce and Rib Rub are some of the best I have ever tasted. What a special treat and amazing dinner. Recommend with two thumbs up and a full, happy belly.
