BBQ Chicken Sandwich with Jalapeno Cilantro Coleslaw

Barbeque Chicken sandwich

There’s nothing better than a delicious twist on a classic dish, and this BBQ chicken version of a pulled pork sandwich definitely hits the mark.  The chicken is saucy and rich, slow cooked in the oven with onions and garlic, but it’s the freshly made coleslaw that will really make your taste buds tingle. The jalapenos add the heat, the cilantro cools things down, and a squeeze of zesty, fresh lime helps bring out all the brightness and vibrancy of these flavorful ingredients.

Father's Day Barbecue Ribs

 

Barbeque Ribs Father's Day Collage

Our Recipe For Dad's Favorite Slow-Cooked Barbecue Baby Back Ribs

For all the sacrifices, small and large, Dad made to allow you to have the best of the best. For all the times Dad said yes because he knew it would mean the world to you. For these reasons and more, Dad deserves to feel like King for at least a day.

This Father’s Day, it’s your turn to do the spoiling. Sunset Foods can help you throw together a feast fit for the king of your heart. We’ve put together a Foolproof Father’s Day recipe for mouthwatering barbecue ribs. Are you ready?

Baby back ribs are one of the top consumed grilled items over the Father's Day weekend. And with their tender texture and juicy meaty flavor, it’s no wonder. You don’t have to go out to a restaurant to enjoy their delicious barbecued goodness. We already know you don’t mind getting your hands dirty – you eat ribs, after all. Roll up your sleeves and follow these steps, and you will be well on your way to grilling up award-worthy Baby Back Ribs.

Considered the filet mignon of pork ribs, Baby Back Ribs are a favorite of many barbecue enthusiasts. They offer a nice marbling of fat, which means flavor, and a smaller size, which reduces cooking time. In fact, you can grill these babies up in about 90 minutes!

So where do we start? First, you’ll want to look for the best quality Baby Backs you can buy. Sunset’s Meat Department is proud to offer Farmland All-Natural Baby Back Ribs. They’re free of hormones, antibiotics and artificial ingredients. And this week, they’re just $4.99 a pound.

Ask any BBQ Pit Master the key to a tasty rib, and they’ll tell you it begins with a tasty rub. A dry rub is a great way to lock in flavor before your ribs hit the grill. Whether you buy a pre-made rub or make your own, don’t skip this step. Take your rub and generously coat both sides your ribs with it. Cover the ribs with plastic wrap and place them in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

While your ribs are resting, get your wood chips ready. We like to use wood chips as they impart a delicious smoky flavor to the meat. There are a lot of different varieties of wood chips out there. Choose your chips based on how smoky you want your ribs – fruit wood chips like apple, cherry or peach lend a subtle smokiness to the meat, while hickory and mesquite woods are very strong. Whichever chips you choose, you will need to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
