It is almost the 4th of July, and do I have a killer recipe for you. Take your grilling up a notch with this Cherry Plum Barbecue Sauce. It has all of the wonderful sweetness and smokiness of a traditional sauce with a depth of fruity flavor from the cherries and plum. I also added some spice to give it a kick.
I made a big batch of this BBQ sauce and marinated the ribs for a day. While cooking, I continually smothered the ribs with more sauce, resulting in some succulent fall off the bone style ribs. We served them with a baked potato, and could not resist drizzling the BBQ sauce on the potato too!
Being a food lover, I have A LOT of cooking utensils. We have a gas grill, smoker, and of course a charcoal grilling fire pit. While I love my smoker, my husband absolutely loves the smoky flavor that comes from the charcoal grill. I think it also has something to do with the fact that he has to make a small fire to get it started. Seriously what is it with men and their fires?!?
Anyway, we are super excited because Kingsford Charcoal is on sale right now at Home Depot. We tend to go through quite a few packages of charcoal during the summer, so we will definitely be stocking up! From today through July 6th, Kingsford Original Twinpack will be on sale for only $9.88 which is half off of the original price!
