We're having a lazy Sunday.
Mr. Hawthorne is stove-top smoking baby back ribs.
Take a sharp knife and remove the silver skin.
The silver skin is exactly what it sounds like.
Rub a mixture of kosher salt, freshly ground pepper,
and smoked paprika into the meat.
Place in stove top smoker with applewood chips.
Cover and heat to 205°.
Check it at 2 hours.
Should be tender to the bone.
I made Purple Cole Slaw:
2 cups shredded purple cabbage
1/2 peeled carrot, julienned
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 tsp cider vinegar
2 tsp sugar
freshly ground pepper
pinch kosher salt
Mix all together and pour over cabbage and carrot.
Toss to coat.
Let sit in fridge for at least 30 minutes for flavors to meld.
