Who doesn’t love a little friendly inter-family competition? Especially when it: (A) involves delicious food and (B) directly benefits me. Win/win.
Here’s the low-down: Team Crooks versus Team Mills in a BBQ Rib-Off. Both teams got their baby back ribs from the same source at the same time. This scientist approves that the proper types of controls were put in place.
Team Crooks’ ribs were prepared with sauerkraut, which supposedly leeches out the fat. They were then smothered in Everett and Jones’ BBQ “Super Q” sauce. Team Mills’ ribs were coated with a secret spice rub and then topped with Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory and Brown Sugar sauce.
There were accusations of manipulated oven temperatures and delayed serving times, but in the end, the judges had spoken. The consensus? Both were awesome, but Team Mills edged out Team Crooks due to its tenderness (falling of the bone) and flavor.
Congrats Team Mills!
