Smoked (and Grilled) Baby Back Ribs with the Masterbuilt Smoker

July 4th weekend is almost here, but why settle for just burgers on the grill when you can wow your friends and family with succulent smoked baby back ribs? Fire up your Masterbuilt Electric's on!

It's center-of-the-sun hot in Atlanta right now, so you want to keep things easy. We used a store bought bbq sauce. I recommend taking the extra time at the grocery store to find one without high fructose corn syrup. That's harder than you'd think! Then we finished these bad boys on the grill to avoid the extra hour on the smoker and give them a little bit of char. More time for kicking back with a cold beer and some air conditioning.

I've never been a huge ribs fan (hard to look cute while gnawing at a bone!), but these were tender, full of smoky sweet flavor and well worth throwing caution to the wind and covering your face in sauce! Easy peasy recipe after the jump.

Lima Dining: Maido

Lima hasn't historically been a must-visit spot in South America, but increasingly food-lovers extend their trips in Peru to make time for checking out some of the city's globally renowned hot spots. That's just what we did, but by the time we finished our hike, I was feeling so tired, I regretted having to wait a day before flying home. Fortunately, Japanese-Peruvian fusion spot, Maido, turned out to be so awesome, I changed my tune.

We're fresh off of our 10 day trip to Peru, the highlight of which was a 4-day, 3-night hike along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Peru is a gorgeous country, and the people were warm and welcoming. More to come on the amazing dining experiences we had. In the meantime, what else do you need to know before deciding whether you should tackle the Inca Trail? Here's what I wish I had known.
