Labor Days Cookouts (or Cookins)

Karen and I have been laboring around the house like so many of our neighbors this weekend. There is nothing like a three day weekend to bring out the labor (or the to do list.)

Like any great three day weekend, you have to have some great eats! Karen and I picked up three slabs of baby back ribs. And, I am cooking them using one of Alton Brown's recipes for ribs from his “I'm Just Here for the Food” book. The nice thing about this approach is that you aren't have to work the ribs. Initially, the ribs are cooked for a hour at 350°F and then reduced to 250°F for another two hours.
