Every bite you take

Spring has sprung which can only mean one thing; the smoldering embers from last year’s last cook-out are beginning to heat up. Soon grills everywhere will be firing up on the weekends, and they will be filled with burgers, hot dogs, chicken, and ribs. As all Master Grillers know, when it comes to ribs you need a good rub and the secret is in the sauce.

Some of my favorite ribs on Walt Disney World property come from Animal Kingdom’s Flame Tree Barbeque. These are ribs done right. For all of you Master Grillers looking for the perfect recipe to kick off your barbecue season, may I suggest Flame Tree’s formulas:



2 Pounds Sugar
8 Ounces Season Salt
2 Ounces Chili Powder
2 Ounces Ground Black Pepper
2 Ounces Paprika
1 Ounce Cumin
1/2 Ounce Garlic Salt
1/2 Ounce Onion Powder



58 Ounces Ketchup
16 Ounces Water
7 Ounces Rice Wine Vinegar
4 Ounces Molasses
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
2 Tablespoons Garlic Salt
2 Tablespoons Onion Powder
2 Tablespoons Paprika
2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin
2 Teaspoons Turmeric
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cloves

For both the rub and sauce combine all ingredients, this is the only step needed for the Barbecue Rub before applying to the ribs. For the Barbecue Sauce, after all ingredients have been mixed together thoroughly, allow them to simmer for 20 – 30 minutes.
