There are only a few days left in summer but that doesn’t mean grilling time is over. My husband and I enjoy grilling – ribs, sausage, pizzas, fish, you name it, we are happy to grill it. One thing my Dad (“Paw” to my kids) taught me is you can cook anything, any day, and at anytime. We’ve learned so much from him over the years about grilling. So, it was only appropriate that when I decided to use Kinder’s® Brown Sugar Rub for a new rib recipe, to name it after my Dad.

Kinder’s Spices are convenient, versatile products that are simple to use. I actually picked up Kinder’s Woodfired Garlic Seasoning, Kinder’s Master Salt Seasoning, and Kinder’s Brown Sugar Rub, all from my local Walmart. You can find all the Kinder’s seasonings and rubs on the spice aisle. They are perfect for all your grilled food, not just beef, too. I foresee using these seasonings and rubs on seafood, vegetables, and even potatoes. Because they provide rich and delicious flavor, that makes them a good shortcut, which means more time to connect with my family. That’s a win for this busy family!

Kinder’s Master Salt Seasoning combines two types of garlic and natural sea salt, with the addition of real butter, to give a rich and delicious taste. It smells so good! Kinder’s Woodfired Garlic Seasoning is inspired by the rich flavor of garlic smoked over real hardwood. I can’t wait to try those seasonings on some side dishes.

For my recipe, I used Kinder’s Brown Sugar Rub, which is best used before cooking. I really wanted to focus on marinating the ribs in a premium, dry rub before cooking. Brown Sugar Rub was an easy way to add lots of flavor to these ribs quickly. Let’s go ahead and light the grill so we can get these ribs cooked!

We always use the above cooking method for cooking our ribs. These brown sugar ribs are not lacking in the flavor department! You can taste the sugar but it’s not overwhelming. Though we basted them in a wet BBQ sauce and butter mix, they don’t have to be wet to be good. Paw’s Brown Sugar Ribs are rich in flavor, with minimal effort. Did you see my ingredients list? You don’t need a lot of ingredients, you just need the right ones.

Paw’s Brown Sugar Ribs can be served with grilled corn and roasted potatoes. I also love a robust red wine to go with my BBQ. Of course, if you’d like to enjoy something cold, a chilled Pinot Grigio would also complement nicely. You’re all set for a delicious meal at home! I already have plans for the other Kinder’s rubs and seasonings I purchased from Walmart. Kinder’s seasonings and rubs are a great complement to your spice cabinet. Remember, you just need the RIGHT ingredients to create a PREMIUM meal.
