Last night my beloved San Francisco 49ers (0-4) hosted the Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) at the Candlestick Park. It is been a tough year so far for the 49ers, the team that most people picked to be the winner of NFC West this year. Obviously things didn’t turn out the way it suppose to for the SF 49ers. I can go on and on about the weakness of the team, it is so frustrating to be the fan. Here goes another miserable season again.
Well, let’s shift the focus other topic. I decided to have a big cookout and invites families and cousins to the dinner. I went all out this time, I bought about 14 lbs of baby-back ribs and spareribs. Also picked up some chicken thighs too. This will be my 3rd time cooking the baby-back ribs and I think I got it down now.
I got all these ribs from Costco. Before applying the dry rubs to the ribs, I trim off some of the extra fat from the ribs. Most people probably will not even bother with that. After giving it a good rub down with some dry rubs, I simply sealed it and throw it back in the fridge for over night. Four hours prior to the dinner, I preheat my oven to 300F and wrap each individual piece with aluminum foil. By wrapping it with aluminum foil allows all the moisture to stays in while cooking. Some people added marinate sauce, wine, apple juice or chicken broth into the wrapped ribs. This will enhance the flavor of the ribs during the cooking process. Since I have about 8 racks of ribs to cook, I used orange juice and Kona beer for my sauces.
Now, getting back to the game. OMG!!! As a fan, I am sick and tired of seeing Alex Smith giving a game away. The turn overs killed our chance to be (1-4), but instead we are now the pathetic (0-5) team and laughing stock of the NFL.
Oh well, the Sunday Night Football game was terrible but the foods and company was awesome. It was nice to see my families and cousins enjoyed the ribs.
