Summer Eats: Kansas City Barbecue Ribs

Summer is in full bloom. The kids are finally out of school, the weather is hot, and the pool is open. So it isn’t surprising that all of that fantastic summer barbecue food is out on the shelves at the grocery store and begging to be brought home and grilled. We love summer barbecues. Ribs are a HUGE favorite in our house. My husband makes them several times during the summer season. I love to have them with lots of sauce. So I love to baste them after they are grilled, and we even keep some extra sauce on hand for eating. But, we love trying new recipes. So of course when I saw this recipe for Kansas City Barbecue Ribs I knew we had to try it.
