Summer in Texas means it's time to fire up the grill or smoker and enjoy some classic BBQ, and nothing says BBQ more than baby back ribs. Our friends over 7 Deadly Wines sent over a few bottles of wine and suggested we try pairing it with some classic Rufus Teague's BBQ sauce flavors. You are going to want to try this yourself. 

What you'll need:

6 pounds pork baby back ribs
4 tablespoons of yellow mustard
1/2 cup of Rufus Teague Meat Rub
1 bottle of Rufus Teague Honey Sweet BBQ Sauce
6+ Hours
