Tailgating Recipes from KYVAN™

KYVAN™ Soul Food Selections is owned by NFL Pro Reggie Kelly & wife Sheila. Sheila came up with the idea for KYVAN (named after their kids Kyla & Kavan) so they could share some of the southern flavors they love so much! Below, Sheila shared a couple of favorite tailgating recipes. Great for those NFL playoff and college bowl games this month! Learn more about KYVAN™ and check out other products at www.kyvan82.com.

KYVAN™ Baby Back Ribs

2 Slabs of baby back ribs
Gallon of apple cider or apple juice
KYVAN™ Sweet BBQ Sauce

Clean ribs and remove the thin film on bottom of ribs. Season ribs with desired amounts of BBQ rub and then place ribs in a deep aluminum pan. Pour apple cider over the ribs and let marinade overnight in refrigerator(covered). Before cooking, remove from apple cider and slightly pat ribs dry. Add more rub if desired. Let ribs become room temperature and set grill to 250-275 degrees (charcoal grill is preferred). Let ribs cook for 2 hrs(donʼt flip ribs) and then brush BBQ sauce on ribs and let cook another 30 minutes. Remove ribs from grill and enjoy!
