City Grocery from Oxford, Mississippi was featured on Good Morning America recently. Chef John Currence was in New York City for the Big Apple BBQ event held last week. John Currence, aka BIG BAD CHEF, is the 2009 James Beard Award Winner for Best Chef South
Part of the bbq segment featured Cheaters Backyard Baby Back Ribs. Most ribs I've ever eaten or smoked were rubbed with spices, salt, and sugar; then sauced with a tomato based sauce containing salt, brown sugar, cumin, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. The "Cheaters" ribs from City Grocery were slathered in a mustard sauce like I've never eaten or seen before.
I've looked on the GMA website, but haven't found the exact recipe for the mustard sauce, but the segment did explain that "cheaters" comes from wrapping the ribs in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil and then cooking them on a bbq smoker.
