Info
It has been nearly 2 years since I made some ribs. No explanation just fact. I was planning on making some S.C. style ribs with mustard sauce in the next month or so. Out of the blue a BBQ buddy of mine, who goes by "Dyal_SC" on the BBQ Bible message board sent me some of his favorite mustard based BBQ sauce. Now he knew I like all things mustard, but I'd told no one about my plans to make S.C. style mustard ribs. I was initially rather shocked, but I decided it must be kismet. I figured I'd have no problem finding a recipe for slow smoked S.C. style BBQ ribs. Turns out nothing could have been further from the truth. I ended up piecing things together from various sources, including Dyal_SC. When I began looking through BBQ related cookbooks & websites I found that this wasn't just any mustard based BBQ sauce, it was THE prototypical SC mustard sauce. I began to have performance anxiety about whether I would screw up a good thing due to my lack of experience with this style of rib and the lack of a recipe. I soon straightened myself out. I reminded myself of the strange kismet of the whole thing and that it was meant to be and I should just have fun with it. That is exactly what I did too. I had a ball during this cook with perfect weather and everything went like clockwork. Bottom line: these were the best ribs I've ever made, served with my favorite BBQ beans & coleslaw.
