Salt and Pepper Ribs
“I grew up in Memphis, and we cooked a lot on wood. I like to incorporate my history into the restaurant—we’ve got a wood-burning grill where we burn whatever local wood we can get at the time. These ribs have a light, smoky flavor, and the basic salt-and-pepper blend gives them a little kick—but nothing too spicy. Saba is made from a wine byproduct and adds a hint of earthiness. It’s the only crazy ingredient in this recipe; most everything else you’re already going to have lying around the house. I made this for a 60-person cocktail dinner, and doing all of the ribs was a cinch.”
Who Cullen Campbell, chef/owner

2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
1 tablespoon chili powder
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 three-pound pork rib racks
2 ounces each parsley, rosemary, and basil
