Various Things Since It's Memorial Day Friday. Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ.



A few things since it's Memorial Day Friday and people are going to be itching to get out of work early.

- For my foreign readers. Do you even HAVE memorial day? And for my American readers will you be sneaking out early? Any good plans for the holiday?

- I was invited to Sea Isle (New Jersey shore) for the weekend - free. I'm not "shore" if I'm going to go. Get it? "shore" instead of "sure"?

- I wonder how soon really good sweet corn will be ready? It's probably going to be a while.

- The helicopters have almost fallen from the eight maple trees in my yard so I may be able to order mulch finally.

- If you're having BBQ this weekend get some Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce . I just discovered it recently and it's the best I've ever had from a bottle.

- I declare this the second worst post ever on TBY.

P.S. - I think the BBQ sauce flavor I had of Sweet Baby Ray's was hickory.

I think you're being generous when you say "second". ;? Which was the first?

My husband loves Sweet Baby Rays sauce. The best part is they keep having it on sale for a dollar a bottle so I've stockpiled like a gross of it. In case there is ever some natural disaster or quarantine, we can live on BBQ sauce.

Yes, shore, go for it. If anyone wants to know what I'm doing, you could read my blog, it doesn't suck that much. And I have tried B.R.'s sauce, it's sweet all right.

J. Hi said...

I think I tasted some at the Costco the other night. That's where we take the kids when we don't feel like cooking--take plently of samples kids 'cause this is your dinner.

BTW, Zibby-doodle, I know you haven't visited me in a while and that is ok. However, I think you might want to check out the 3/4 naked boobies on my last post. I just didn't want you to miss them. Luvz ya. ;)

Dr Zibbs said...

Devil's - The first worst was last year sometime. I think it was in August.

J.Hi - I read most of your posts. I just don't comment as much as I used to. Anywhere.

Samsmama said...

We're having a BBQ Sunday, but we are die hard fans of Country Bob's sauce. Delicious.

Dr Zibbs said...

Samsmama - Never heard of that one but I will check it out.

I'm so sick of using Kraft BBQ sauce. Even though I usually ad brown sugar, garlic, onion, syrup, mustard and hot sauce to it.

Bloggin' Bama Girl said...

My man makes his own BBQ sauce. He thinks he's freakin' Emerald.

B.E. Earl said...

My father in-law makes the best BBQ sauce. I like a really strong vinegar flavor on my BBQ.

Mr. Condescending said...

haha I have sweet baby rays in the pantry!!!

diane said...

We're having a little bbq tomorrow, if you would like to come. My e-mail is dyejobslye at hotmail dot com.

~Thought's By Dena~ said...

Hope you have an awesome loooong week-end and have yourself some sweet rays!!!!!!

Jennifer and Sandi said...

I will have to give your BBQ sauce a try. I really like "Famous Dave's" Devil spit. We like HOT BBQ sauce!!!

Trust me, this is not one of two of your worst posts. Just say'n!

Helicopters!! (Snicker) I didn't think anyone even knew what those were called. That's pretty funny. Give a couple of them a toss/whirl for me will ya?

Have a WONDERFUL Holiday!

- Jennifer

Dr Zibbs said...

Diane - thanks but my cape is at the cleaner's.

Also, what part of PA are you from?

Jennifer - I'll put that BBQ sauce on my list.

Scandalous Housewife said...

Zibbs,
You mean you've never had Stubb's Bar-B-Q sauce made in Austin, TX? Oh, Daddy, you NEED to try it!

And get your ass to Sea Isle this weekend! Duh!

Dr Zibbs said...

Scandalous - I won't buy it because the label is racist.

Naaa. I have had it and it's delicious.

Scope said...

I use Sweet Baby Ray's when cooking up the easiest Horse De'veer's of all time.

Crock pot + Sweet Baby Rays + Grape Jell + Little Smokeys (you can also use them pre-made meatballs from Trader Joe's) = Yummy F'n Good!

Courtney said...

My mom introduced me to Sweet Baby Ray's....I continue to purchase it strictly because the name makes me chuckle.

Gwen said...

Can you whistle with the helicopters? For some reason I think we did this as kids. If you can, please video and post.

words...words...words... said...

Helicopters! That really brought me back to childhood.

I like Sweet Baby Ray's sauce a lot when I want a sweet sauce. I also like the Famous Dave's Devil Spit for spicy. Sometimes I even mix them for a taste explosion in my mouth.

Prunella Jones said...

I don't like bar-be-que. Why is that the Memorial Day fav? Deep fried pickles on a stick are much tastier and really represent what America is all about IMO.

Cameron said...

Heh...funny. I just tweeted about Sweet Baby Ray's. I used to be a KC Masterpiece type of man, but then I had Sweet Baby Ray's....yummaayy!!

Cameron said...

By the way...YES Kraft is gross. I really don't like any 'vinegary' barbecue sauces.

diane said...

I live in Coaldale, it's in the foothills of the Poconos. About an hour north of Allentown, or 20 minutes east of Jim Thorpe.
I knew you would have better plans, but you can't blame me for trying. xo

Dr Zibbs said...

Oh Diane, hillbilly country huh?

Some of my ancestors at the turn of the century were coal miners in Scranton.

Slyde said...

will i be sneaking out early?

fuck yeah! im actually leaving now :)

Some Guy said...

Sweet Baby Ray's is a staple in our house. Have a great weekend, buddy!

Laura said...

South Jersey here and yeah, we love Sweet Baby Ray's too. On spareribs tonight. Yum.

Peggy said...

First of all Sweet Baby Ray should be sending you some cash. 2nd, they sell it at our local hardware stores and c: you're right, it is the best with the exception of a local bbq restaurant that sells their sauce.

Have a great weekend.

Dr Zibbs said...

Laura - welcome to TBY

Peggy - I want YOU to have a good weekend.

Rikki said...

Seriously, the best is to mix sweet baby ray's with a bottle of jack daniels' bbq sauce.

Chaka said...

Thanks for the Sweet Baby Ray's recommendation. I will give it a shot. You are too hard on yourself. I liked this post. It's hard to go wrong when you feature food. Have a great weekend.

Fancy Schmancy said...

Sweet Baby Rays = Awesome

Hickory = What I'm most allergic to

The Shore = Awesome

New Jersey = Death

I'm just sayin'

Fancy Schmancy said...

Prunella - I love all pickles - where can I find them deep fried on a stick? Girl, you have to turn me on. In exchange, I promise to send you some garlic-dill ones straight from my garden...

Dr Zibbs said...

Fancy - you're asking Prunella to turn you on? Be prepared. That's all I'm sayin'.

Loflo~ Seleus said...

I may be the only one that doesnt like BBQ sauces! Yeah I know Im crazy. Have a great weekend!

WendyB said...

Now that I don't have a corporate job, I think three-day weekends are stupid and should be banned. They inconvenience me, dammit! I can't get stuff done.

sybil law said...

I'm gonna have to see if I can get that sauce around here- I've heard of it before!
No big plans this weekend, other than to drop the kid off at grandma's and ingest in some alcohol. :)

J.J. in L.A. said...

Ever since we had Famous Dave's in MN, we tell the relatives to sneak some in their suitcases when they winter in AZ. I can't handle the Devil Spit though. I'm rather fond of my tongue...and so is my man.

Hey! Visit me on Monday! 100th post!

Chris said...

Sweet Baby Ray's is one of the best commercial sauces available, IMHO. The National BBQ News (competitive q geeks like me) forum did a post in the past year or so and this was one of the favorites "when not using your own".

Dominica said...

Sure we have memorial days - the bad part is, it's in November, so no BBQ for us !!
Love any sauce ; that bottle look inviting and I'm craving for a little piece of BBQ grilled meat right now (and it's 8 in the morning)

Mr London Street said...

No, we don't have Memorial Day in England. Or Thanksgiving. So we're an ungrateful, forgetful bunch of fuckwits.

Dr Zibbs said...

Chris - that's good to know. And I just started following you again. I guess I was unfollowed when you changed the name of your blog.

Soda and Candy said...

Australia's version of Memorial Day is called Anzac Day. It's sort of a cross between Memorial Day & Veterans Day, because it's a national holiday and there is a parade.

ANZAC is an acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, originating from WWI, but Anzac Day has come to commemorate all wars in which Aus/NZ were involved. It certainly doesn't glorify war but rather mourns the loss of good people to it and honors those who served.

Suburbia Steph said...

Sweet Baby Ray's IS tha shizz!

I just get the regular one.

Good stuff!
