Grilling is central to living a happy life I say, especially in Texas, and the weather this week is perfect for it! When it comes to ribs, are you for the wet or the dry rub kind?I lost the Big Green Egg and a great backyard grill in the split with my spouse two years ago, and I still haven't quite recovered. There's nothing better on a Saturday than starting the charcoal early in the morning and letting a big slab of brisket or ribs go all day long.

I need to get a husband who can grill quick! It's summer.

My dad is a master griller, and usually goes with the John Henry Pecan Rub for ribs. I love that dry rubs are easy. Just rub it on and slap the rack on the grill.

Then drink a beer and act like you're watching the meat, but also understand that women know you don't need to be sittin' out there the whole time. We'll be out shoe shopping in case you come in for a refill and wonder where we went.

I ran across another rib recipe as I was Googling and thought I'd share. You can throw together your own dry run with this one, and then enjoy the smell for about six hours. This Texas Rib Recipe won 1st place in the 1996 Chilsolm Trail Roundup BBQ cookoff in Fort Worth, and the author says it works well for pork or beef ribs. Yum.

It's supposed to be sunny and around 90 for the next few days, and even warmer this weekend. Happy grilling!
