I definitely need to start eating healthier. I’ve been having a really hard time in that department lately. So, here’s the thing, my Grandparents have been in town visiting, and when they are here I do tend to eat a little… ok, a lot worse. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t take much to bring me over to the food dark side. It’s not that I dislike vegetables, it’s just that I like sugar, simple carbohydrates, and fats so, so much better.

In fact, I was even working on significantly reducing my sugar intake. I had been approaching a week (SIX DAYS!) with no sugar at all!

Since they’ve arrived we’ve also ordered Chinese, been out to dinner, and picked up burgers for lunch multiple times. All delish, but all also brutal on the waistline….

The secret consists of a surprisingly simple set of techniques that you’re probably quite familiar with; but happens to yield the most moist, juicy, flavorful, fall of the bone tender, country ribs you…
