Oh Phoebe

I am currently on a NASCAR tailgating race weekend. We are seeing some races at Dover International Speedway. On the way into the track this morning I saw a motor home set up on the side of the road with 2 huge BBQ smokers. I took mental note of it and decided to stop in and check it out after the races.

I parked and walked over and met a very nice gentleman named Clint. I asked all about his smokers. He had built them himself. He told me that he learned everything that he knew about cooking from his grandma, Phoebe. Side note, he told me that his great grandma, his mom & his sister were all named Phoebe too. He had side dishes like potato salad too, but he opened one of the smokers for me and I saw visions of beauty. Pork butt and ribs were covering the grates. The smell was wonderful. My senses were reeling! I took some ribs to go and I reheated them when we got back to camp. The flavor of the smoke and rub were perfect. Clint had given me some homemade BBQ sauce, but I’m a dry rub kind of girl. I like my ribs naked. I saved the sauce and will try some later. I can’t deny Clint, or Grandma Phoebe, the honor of not at least trying it.

So if you are ever in Delaware and see some roadside smokers with an old motor home, and the sign says, OH Phoebe, make the time to stop in and see Clint and say hello & try his awesome fare.
