Jake’s Boss BBQ

Slow-smoked, slow-cooked, but served fast, Jake’s pork ribs are greasy slabs of heaven. Or they would be, if heaven were built out of meat so tender it melts off the bone in saintly gobbets, doused in a sauce precisely balanced between infernal smoke and angelic sweetness with just the right smack of spices. The devout will also want to pay homage to the beef ribs, the brisket, and the “burnt ends,” all of which are equally divine.
