I just got back from a trip through Aiken on business and I would be doing a great disservice to you all if I didn't mention the new rib place I ate at. Only open since October, the husband was out in the parking lot slow smoking racks of ribs over seasoned hickory (no charcoal or gas here folks). Inside, the wife assured me that these ribs were so good I would slap myself (she said this twice... I slapped myself three times on the way home!!) The ribs were absolutely perfect. A nice rub and a dip in either regular or Mustard BBQ sauce. Absolutely top knotch and worth the detour if you find yourself within 60 miles. The Place is called the Rib Rack and is on York Road just across from the Bi-Lo. If you get off of 20 heading toward Aiken on US1, they pop up on your left about 5-10 miles down. Let me know what you think.
Still licking my fingers,
