Sweet 'n Sassy Chinese Ribs

"This recipe comes from DH's favorite book, Weber's Big Book Of Grilling. Removing the membrane from the underneath side results in tender, "falling off the bone" ribs. To cook on indirect medium heat simply means to have your fire on one side and your meat on the other side so your meat is not directly over the fire. These ribs are "finger-licking" and "out of this world" good. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do."

Living in the south we are very lucky to have an abundance of fresh seafood and other ingredients at our disposal when trying new recipes. My husband and I both love to cook and have learned a lot about cooking from our native Louisianian, Paul Prudhomme (we learned to be very careful with his recipes as they are very spicy - even for us), native New Orleanian, Frank Davis and transplanted Emeril Lagasse. It would be very difficult to pick an all time favorite cookbook since I have approximately 200. I enjoy collecting local cookbooks as well as others from different areas. This picture is obviously when DH and I got married. I cooked all the food and even made my wedding cake.
