John’s ribs

My husband John used to be a professional cook.  He started at age 16 and worked his way up to chef at the Big Apple Cafe in Rochester, NY.  He is now, years later,a self taught top IOS programmer!!!!!  But, he still loves to cook, especially ribs and buffalo chicken wings, being that he is from the Northern East coast and that his father, born in Missouri, taught him early on how to smoke meats and fish, it still remains his go to fun and satisfying food of his life.  He misses the fat on the ribs here in Portland, but once in a while he lucks out and gets a rare butcher to leave it on so they can retain their juiciness as they slow cook in our back yard smoker/grill.  He will be selling his ribs by preorder to his clamoring programmer buddies and other Portland acquaintances who cannot believe the amazing product he turns out!!!!

He will charge $14/for half rack!!!

Starting July 28!!!

Please place your orders early, as we will need to purchase and prep all the ribs as well do a long smoke on them (yes I will be photographing and writing it up, as well as taking all the orders!!!)

Here are the photos from the last rib cooking session!
