Let me start this off by saying… my in-laws rock! While I had to go in to the office to work this past Saturday, they, along with my wife, worked out in our yard and got it in decent shape. For all the hard work that they did, I had to pay them back somehow. And how does someone with a passion for BBQ pay back a favor? Why, with BBQ, of course! And luckily for me, the requested meat was ribs!
I often lament the lack of good quality BBQ joints here in the Charlotte, NC metro area. It really is a shame that in a city the size of Charlotte, the closest good BBQ joint is a 45-60 minute drive away. There were a couple of joints close to my previous employer that were okay, but they were nothing spectacular.
