Carl’s BBQ Dinner

This just may be the very best BBQ dinner you will ever have!

BBQ Baby Back Ribs ( using our sauce)
Kay’s BBQ Beans
Kay’s Macaroni and Cheese
Green Salad
Garlic Bread

    I like to make up the beans and mac & cheese a day or two before the dinner. They keep well and then there is less for me to do on “the” day and the less for me to do, the better I like it.
When buying ribs, I get the baby back pork ribs and I anticipate about 9 ribs per person.  
Some will have only two or three.  Most will have a dozen. They are just that good.  

If you are having a large group include Gail’s Beans for a variety.

For the green salad, I usually have iceberg with a few tomatoes diced up in it. And, offer Italian and Ranch as dressings.

Garlic Bread is garlic bread. But, CostCo has the best already prepared.  While you are at CostCo getting the ribs and garlic bread, pick up a package of their green salad.  It’s ready to go.

You will notice there is no desert listed.  Not an oversight.
Make something up if you want but usually everyone will be so full there will be no room for anything else.  

Look in BBQ Instructions for how to prepare the ribs and recipes for sauce and the beans.  Mac and cheese recipe is in the Casserole section but here it is again..

Kay’s Mac & Cheese
This is the best Mac & cheese I ever had.  I used to say the Best You Ever Had but everyone's tast is different..  Spice it up with some of Kay's Seasoning.
Kay Depew

1 lb (for 9x13 pan)    macaroni, cooked and drained
2 cans            mushroom soup
2 soup cans        milk
2 TBS        all purp flour
1 cup         sour cream
3 1/2 cups ea        cheddar and jack cheese shredded
1 TBS        Seasoning salt  
1 cup         Peppridge Farms Herb Seasoned stuffing           
                    crumbs  (hard to find but get some)

        Mix soup, milk, sour cream, flour and seasoned salt in a bowl.  Add mixture to macaroni and stir in 3 cups each of the cheeses.  Pour into a 9 x 13 pan.    Top the combined mixture by sprinkling with the remaining  cup of the cheeses and stuffing mix.
    Bake @ 350º for 20 – 30 minutes.   If  Mac & Cheese has been in the refrigerator,  remove and let come to room temperature before re-heating.  If taken directly from refrigerator re-heat @ 350 for 30 – 50 minutes or until hot through.

Knowing I was going to have to write this up, I bought some ribs this morning.  Now, I’m going to go in and whip ‘em up.
