Those ribs are going to be tasty, I'll bet. I think Gail would like those two dishes because they are not particularly challenging. I made the beef with less spice because Alden doesn't do spicy foods, and it was still tasty and we all liked it.
That should be a blast Jim! Have a great time. I got a box of Texas beer plus one bad-ass SOB from Utah and chicharones! I should do more half-assed legal work for Naaman because this is a sweet payoff.
