Baby Back Ribs
Excellent method for cooking ribs, 300°F for 2 1/2 to 3 hours worked great for me. Like many reviewers I used Sweet Baby Ray's Hot n Spicy BBQ Sauce. Also used the "Kansas City Rib Rub" I found on about.com (but not as much black pepper as the recipe calls for), and applied that before spreading the ribs with the BBQ sauce. I recommend using heavy duty foil so the bones stand less of a chance of poking a hole in the foil packet. Plus I lined the baking sheet with foil too, just for insurance. Result: perfectly cooked ribs and no clean up (or lingering household odor). Very "more-ish"!!!

Brisket with BBQ Sauce
I was working on the 4th so I decided to prepare something "BBQ" that would be ready when I got home. I used a pot roast because I couldn't get brisket, and browned it first before putting it in the slow cooker with 2 slices of sweet onion for a "rack" and a little pineapple juice for liquid - for 9 hrs. During the last hour I removed the onion and cooking liquid, then added the BBQ sauce while breaking up the meat into chunks. The meat was fantastic, but the sauce - made exactly per recipe - was just okay. Nothing to write home about. I would use a bottled BBQ sauce next time - simpler and more flavorful.

Fig and Olive Tapenade
I thought the texture was too lumpy (maybe I didn't chop finely enough) and twiggy (rosemary) so I pureed the tapendade in my food processor. Definitely more attractive. Deemed excellent by my discerning tasting panel.
