Best-Ever Barbecued Ribs from The Daily Meal will make a the grate at my house this season.

Last summer I made ribs and loved them until I figured out how unhealthy they are, and I spent weeks repenting.
This summer I want to make ribs once or twice and not waste the experience by serving it with a side of guilt. I’ve accepted that simply can’t go the rest of my life without them. As long as I keep it to a few times a year …
At any rate, I can blame part of my recent rib cravings on my job. I was working on a story for Sunday about stuff to see and do while driving west on Route 5. The third time I traversed the route (though I’ve done so many times before) I finally broke down and stopped at Avonia Tavern for lunch. I’d been avoiding it because I knew they’re known for wings and ribs, two of my worst dietary downfalls, but after much soul searching, I decided it was shirking my duties as a Route 5 explorer if I didn’t even know how they tasted.
So I tried them. And then it was all over.
I got this recipe for Best-Ever Barbecued Ribs on Daily Candy in my e-mail this morning, and I figured next week’s July 4 grilling mandate made a perfect excuse to write about another awesome-looking recipe for them — while I enjoyed my Avonia Tavern leftovers with lots of napkins.
Now I need a shower, but my belly is happy.
