Rosemary Barbecue Seasoning #recipe from author @DarylWoodGerber + GRILLING THE SUBJECT book #giveaway


Rosemary barbecue seasoning recipe
GRILLING THE SUBJECT Giveaway. See below

But first!

From: Daryl aka Avery

Throughout this year, I have been perfecting my barbecue skills. I had to because Grilling the Subject was coming out in August and it contained barbecue-style recipes: a variety of sauces, barbecue "muffins", Cowboy cookies, and more. I had so much fun taste testing.

But here's one of the reasons I love to barbecue. I don't have to stay in the kitchen to cook. Oh, sure, prep is in the kitchen, but then I get to sit outdoors and read. If you cook slowly, like you have to for ribs so they don't char to smithereens, you get a lot of down time. I adore down time. Reading, sipping wine, thinking about the day, plotting my next murder -- fictional murder,  in a book, not in real life.  Heh-heh.

I find that sitting outdoors really clears my head. I hear the birds. I hear the wind whispering through my wind chimes. I enjoy the changing colors of flowers and such. And Sparky loves it. He doesn't read, but he gets to watch bugs, hug his favorite ball, you get the idea.

For your viewing pleasure, a few photos to help you breathe easier.







By the way, I'm learning a new type of gardening. Succulents. I'm not very good at it yet. I think I overwatered at the beginning, but I'm getting the hang of it. You're supposed to ignore them!  I'm pretty good at ignoring things when it suits me.   LOL


Today, what I'm sharing is the barbecue seasoning recipe that is my go-to recipe. I use it all the time. You can make the dry part of the "seasoning" ahead of time and keep sealed. You add the liquid at the very last. The spices alone will keep for a long time. Enjoy!


ROSEMARY Barbecue Seasoning

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon orange rind
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice (do not add until ready to use)

Directions:

Mix all the seasonings until blended. {This may be stored for quite a while.}

**Do NOT add the lemon juice until ready to use that day. [If you don't have lemon juice, use orange juice.]

For Ribs:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Set your choice of meat (I use 1 ½  to 2 pounds of baby back ribs, but chicken or pork chops will do) on large sheet of foil. Set on top of a long flat baking pan.



Mix the dry seasoning with the lemonade (juice). Rub the wet seasoning on the top of the meat and wrap the foil tightly around it.



  
Set the baking pan in the oven for 2 hours and bake slowly.

Remove from the oven. Remove the ribs the foil.

Then, if you'd like, the ribs can be either be grilled on the barbecue to add extra flavor or broiled to crisp up.  (About 10 minutes - 5 minutes per side.)




The meat will pull apart with your fingers.

  1. Sparky is SO adorable! Love the seasoning recipe - great for barbecue, for sure. I like sitting outside when the weather is pleasant (not too hot/humid). EMS591@aol.com

    1. I agree, Liz. I'm not big on hot/humid sitting outside. Did that a lot in Orlando, Florida and Charlotte, NC. I don't think I was ever without a hat on my head. Talk about curls! LOL ~ Daryl

  2. I love sitting outside!!! Since we only have about 2 months of nice weather where I live you have to savour it while you can...although we do BBQ in the winter too!!! Fortheloveofbooks83@gmail.com

  6. I love to sit outside. As part of our retirement remodel we covered the patio and added a pond, so restful to sit outside. And I even have lights so I can read at night! Sparky always looks so cute.

    Thanks for the recipe. Homemade spice mixes are always the best, especially since you can control the sodium. Thanks for the generous giveaway, too!

  8. I would like to sit outside--but the summer is full of mosquitos and it's freezing cold in the winter---that leaves only spring or fall to try to grab a nice day now an then. That rub recipe looks REALLY good.

  9. I love to sit outside as i am disabled so to get a chance to watch the 4 legged girls play while i sit out on my scooter is so nice as i am home all day and it can sometimes be too much but when you have a problem and can't work the best thing is to have dogs and go outside or inside and read that is my day. ptclayton2@aol.com p.s. exc trips to the dr which my friend comes out to our house and picks me up or on wed when we go out to dinner then i go to her house and do crafts then hubby comes into town with the dogs and picks me up.

  11. I love sitting outside and reading. I have a rocker on the front patio and I live in an apartment complex, so I like being able to chat with my neighbors (its a small complex only 36 units) and some always ask what I am reading. I am thinking of putting up a sign with Hi and the book name and the author so I am not bothered. It always happens in a good part. Thanks for the recipe. vlhcats@gmail.com

  23. Where I live the weather is pretty mild most of the time. We like to sit and watch the birds and the squirrels. They love driving the cats to distraction. Ours and the neighbors. They provide half hour or so of amusement. Then we just watch the clouds, and sometimes eat out there. Looks like a great recipe. Thanks for that and for a chance to get the book sooner. Rather than later. Della at deepotter at peoplepc dot com.

  24. Thanks for sharing today. That Sparky is one cute little friend! I'm lucky enough to have a covered back patio and a one and a half year old so we spent a lot of time outside this summer. Today in NY the temp was 80! We are soaking up as much of the nice weather as we can and dreading the winter! Thanks for the chance to win. Just because! 😉

  29. I don't spend a lot of time sitting outside because when I do, there are way too many dogs vying for my attention. They are spitting their balls onto my lap or scratching me to get me to pet them. Or the little one is barking his high-pitched bark for me to watch him swim.
    It really is much quieter to stay in my room where I only have my one little dog to keep me company.
