This year we started doing rib cookouts at our stores. I was a bit nervous as to how they would go given that we haven’t done anything quite like this before. Luckily, we had a great deli leader jump in and give it a try. It was a huge success and we used their ideas to expand this to all our stores. In fact, our guests have loved them and are continually asking about the “next one”!
So- what is a Rib Cookout? Our deli team sets up in front of the store and grills ribs all day long so you can just drop by and pick up a freshly grilled rack. This is a great way to enjoy hot and tasty ribs without all the work!
The Rib itself is a Kretschmar product. It is a St. Louis Style rib that we sauce with our own in house blended BBQ sauce. So tender and juicy that it falls off the bone. Yum!
Our next rib event will be on September 13th at all of our stores. If you can’t stop by that day, we also sell them every day of the week in our deli as a Heat ‘n Eat item OR you will find them in our Hot Case( by the Rotis Chicken) to take home. Grab a couple of side dishes, (coleslaw and potato salad are always popular), some fresh baked cornbread and you have the meal for your family. The Heat ‘n Eat ribs are fully cooked; you just need to warm them up. Only a couple of minutes and dinner is served!
Stop by our Deli department and ask for a sample if you want to try before you buy. Let me know what you think. I am willing to bet you will be back for more!
