For the Super Bowl we tried something new -- Watermelon Ribs, using the recipe from Loveless Cafe. I have step-by-step pics on my blog, but I'm not sure if it's cool to post a link. They were interesting because we smoked 'em for three hours, and then braised 'em for two. I always thought braising (or especially boiling) ribs was sacrilege, but I'm glad we tried it! The watermelon flavor was subtle, yet distinct. We let some ribs finish on the smoker for comparison, and I gotta say the braised ribs were better in a way. They were truly fall-off-the-bone tender and obviously more moist than the smoked ribs. Anyway, it's something a little different, it's super easy, and I say it's worth a try sometime...
