Mail Order BBQ Ribs
As I am in Boston, not exactly a BBQ Mecca, would anyone suggest a good mail order source for Dry Rubbed BBQ Pork Ribs that are not too outrageously expensive or is it not worth the bother?
I've never ordered ribs through the mail so I don't know how they'd fair.
When we go to the in laws (Alabama) we always make a stop at Dreamland http://www.dreamlandbbq.com/
They only lightly season them and they're not completely smoked. Just cooked over hard wood at a low temp. What they are is the best ribs I and my southern wife have ever had.
So, while I would highly recommend these ribs at their restaurant. I would never recommend ANY rib, mail order. I just don't know what you'd be getting. That said, if I were to MO ribs, it'd be them.
I have ordered from Dreamland twice and both experiences were great. The ribs are perfectly spiced and meaty but the sauce... The sauce is some of the most addictive stuff on the planet. Worth it to place an order just to get a quart of sauce. The loaf of Sunbeam bread they include for sopping up puts a smile on your face too.
Honestly I don't think Dreamland's are THAT much better than Blue Ribbon's or East Coast Grill's on a good day. I like Dreamland's ribs, but ... they're expensive mail-ordered and not necessarily worth the cost.
Try my ribs. They are the best you'll ever have. They are dry rubbed in New Jersey!
I'll send you a sampler for the cost of shipping if you are interested. I'm a yankee trying to make it in the BBQ business!
