a huge selection of sauces and rubs a unique event
that is bound to excite even the most discerning of rib
lovers, thats what.
BBQ Catering owner and pit master Mat Flosse
is looking forward to the first ever Rib Night
at Romantic Fire-places & BBQs next week.
Western Beef, Meatings BBQ Catering, and Romantic Fireplaces
& BBQs are joining forces to present the first ever
Rib Night on Thursday, May 25 .
will be able pick the brains of Meatings owner and pit
master Mat Flosse before sampling the baby back ribs
provided by Lavergne and smoked using various rubs and
sauces sold on site at the Romantic store located at the
corner of St. Joseph and Jeanne dArc Blvd.
event is the brainchild of Romantic Fireplace & BBQ
president Michael Pilon who wanted to expose local residents
to the deliciousness that is traditional southern-style
smoking and BBQing.
first thing you need to make authentic southern-style
BBQ is a smoker. Some wood-burning smokers are extremely
large and require a great deal of attention and care.
An excellent alternative are wood-pellet smoker/grills
like the Royall Smoker BVQ, or the Country Smoker Series
carries the complete line of Royall Smoker BBQs along
with a number of similar smoker grills.
many amateur grillers are reluctant to make the jump from
gas or charcoal barbeques to smokers, thinking that they
are difficult to master. Thats where Flosse comes
in. The Meatings owner is looking forward to helping people
understand the ins and outs of using a wood-pellet smoker
and producing succulent, delicious ribs.
one of those things that after you learn a few tricks
to the trade and stick to some of the basics, you cant
go wrong, especially if you combine quality meat with
the right rubs and sauces, says Flosse.
organizers are hoping more spring-like weather will return
in time for next weeks sold out event.
for the first ever Rib Night were limited to just 56 people
at $25 a head. They were sold in less than two weeks,
prompting the principal organizers to consider making
it a regular event.
the interest is there, which there appears to be, Im
sure well do it again, says Flosse.
