Your Guide To Regional Styles of BarbecueWe get questions about what the different rib styles are all about all the time. Mostly everyone knows that our Memphis is sweet, and that our Carolina is mustard based. But, we thought it would be fun to make a little infographic showing what spices and flavors actually go into each style. Enjoy!
Imagine this… You’re sitting around the campfire, drinking a couple beers and joking with your friends. Then someone says, “dinner’s ready” and you all gather around a large cast iron skillet. The aluminum foil gets peeled off and you instantly smell the best campfire dinner smell ever – barbeque.
Now I’m turning that imagined experience into a reality for you with these campfire barbeque nachos! Featuring Pig of the Month meats, all you have to worry about is preparing shredded chicken prior to packing up and heading to your campsite. Then simply assemble all the ingredients, cover with foil and cook directly on the campfire until everything’s warm and the cheese is melted.
You’ll end up loving the three-meat combination on these campfire nachos so much, you’ll be building fire pits in your backyard just for an excuse to eat them on a weeknight! DIG IN!
INSTRUCTIONS: Layer the tortilla chips on the bottom of the cast iron skillet, filling it approximately 1/3 of the way full. Add the pulled pork, brisket and pulled chicken in an even layer on top of the chips.
Top the meats with black beans, sliced jalapeños, and cheese. Cover the cast iron skillet with aluminum foil and place directly on the campfire. Cook until the dish is warmed through and the cheese is melted, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. You can also cook this under the broiler on low for approximately 5 minutes at home!
Remove from heat, peel off the foil and top with the fresh tomato chunks. Serve immediately with either barbeque sauce or salsa and hot sauce.

INSTRUCTIONS: In a small bowl, whisk together spices to create the super secret rub. Remove the membrane from the ribs and cut slab into three equal pieces. Add one of the three piece to the insert of a slow cooker. Top with one third of the rub, using your hands to rub it into the meat. Top the slab piece with one third of the BBQ sauce. Repeats these layers (ribs, rub, sauce) until the last layer of sauce. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Remove from slow cooker and serve.
