|Mary's plate - ribs, sweet corn, and summer vegetables.|
My plan was to work a bit on the rub recipe, and I decided to go with a Kansas City style that features brown sugar and cayenne. If you Google this type of thing you'll find that some ink is given to the difference between the K.C. and Memphis styles. They saw K.C. style uses a sauce in addition to the rub, while Memphis style doesn't...neither Mary nor I found that any sauce was needed on these when all was said and done.
|As you can see I started with a very meaty half rack.|

I had some other prep to get back to - I had to shuck some sweet corn, cut up vegetables, and things like that. I also wanted to make some ice cream for dessert - I bought some fresh raspberries for this to combine with some dark chocolate chips I had stored in the fridge.

I enjoyed a stogie while things were under way, and I'll admit to having a nice Fat Tire IPA for accompaniment.

There's a photo below of the platter. Usually we have a little left from a half rack - we did this time too. But they were gone by lunchtime Sunday.
And neither of us used any sauce on the leftovers.
