Gates & Sons Kc BBQ Ribs

Recipe by Mysterygirl

Mr Gates was on Martha Stewart and they gave out the recipes. Then the restaurant was featured on "The Best of" on Foodtv and they gave out the secret of keeping the grilled meat moist. You will be surprised, but it works and you will be in BBQ heaven with this.

Top Review by Sam Saguaro

As good a BBQ rib as I've ever had, an believe me, I've had many. I didn't change a thing, except brushing a little sauce on them the last few minutes on the grill. They were wonderful, spicy and very flavorful. A real keeper, thanks Mysterygirl, I'll be making these again, and for much larger crowds.
