We're driving from Chicago to Northport, Mich. (north of Traverse City) next week and expect to be somewhere around Cadillac for lunch. Do any of you fellow Chowhounds have any recommendations? Thanks!
Beef ribs can stand up to strong flavors. Here, a spicy-sweet rub with chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and brown sugar coats the meat, which is roasted to tenderness. Finishing on the grill with a smoky chipotle barbecue sauce ensures the meat gets a nice char and the sauce lacquers.
