BBQ Ribs & Chopped Brisket for 4

Melissa Cookston’s Memphis BBQ ships its famous barbecue nationwide on Goldbelly! Melissa makes her ribs and chopped brisket the Memphis way! 2.75 lb slabs of delicious baby back ribs are marinated in her special seasoning for 12 hours, then slowly smoked over pecan wood. Her chopped beef brisket is rubbed down with her "Grillin’ Shake, then smoked for 14 hours over pecan wood as well.

Since 2011, award-winning competition pitmaster Melissa Cookston has been smoking ribs, brisket, and pulled pork over hardwood at her restaurant Memphis BBQ Company in Horn Lake, Mississippi. She’s been featured on “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives,” judged Netflix’s “American Barbecue Showdown,” is the only female to be crowned a world BBQ champion, and was the first woman pitmaster to be inducted into the Barbecue Hall of Fame.

To Serve Ribs

Thaw ribs under refrigeration first

For Wet Ribs
You’re going to coat the ribs with the BBQ sauce. Now, don’t go crazy with the sauce, just lightly put on a coat, allow the ribs to caramelize a bit, then add another coat. Flip the ribs over and repeat. If you can pick the ribs up and the sauce runs off, you have sloppy ribs, not wet ones. We’re not judging, though.

For Dry Ribs
Just think of the Classic Seasoning as if it were a sauce, and add just like you did for wet ribs.

For Muddy Ribs
Follow the procedure for wet ribs, and just before serving give the a generous shake of seasoning on top. Enjoy!


  • Heat grill up to medium-hot
  • Oil grates, remove ribs and place on grill meat side down
  • Sprinkle or based as desired

  • Allow to cook until piping hot, about 7 more minutes.
