Baby Back Ribs in the Dutch Oven and Leftovers

(Another post from our July 1-6, 2010 TERT Trip)

Sunday Dinner was wonderful.  On the menu we had Baby Back Ribs, Corn on the Cob, Baked Potatoes and Peach Cobbler for dessert.

Here are the ribs:  this photo show them dry, cooked to fall off the bone perfection and already picked at.

This photo show the ribs in the Dutch Oven.  Yes we really did cook them in there.  We cut a whole rack in half and put Pilot's secret dry rub on them.  And then wrapped them in foil and let them cook away for a couple of hours over nice hot coals and coals on the lid as well.
As they were just finishing up getting ready to fall off the bones, we smothered them in Pilot's secret homemade bbq sauce.  These were delicious.  And four ribs a piece, was not enough for satisfaction fulfillment, it was enough for caloric intake and control. 

But really, who can stop eating delicious ribs?  I could eat them all day when they are prepared correctly.  Correctly only means tender, fall off the bone soft, and tasty.  I enjoy all different tasty flavors.  I do have to say though, Pilot's experiments have all been tasty to me.  I'd rather eat his, than eat ribs prepared by any restaurant, any day!!

After the ribs were done, we had quite a bit of bbq sauce left over.  So I threw in the rest of the bag of meatballs from earlier meals, and carrots and pepper chunks, both red and green.  I let this simmer until the veggies were tender and the meatballs were soft and juicy.  This too was delicious!!  

We tasted it and then put it in the trailer's freezer for another day- at home that is.  We couldn't eat any more this day, the ribs were filling, the corn and potatoes were filling as well.  And then to top everything off, Angel's peach cobbler was rich and very filling!  It was a delicious Sunday of good campfire eats!!
