    family visiting this weekend...and I'm not ready!

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    So my aunt is coming into town this weekend and is expecting a wonderful paleo/primal meal. She loves BBQ and I've seen some recipes for paleo style sauces but I've tried two different ones so far and I think they both suck. They both call for apple cidar vinegar and even in small amounts it makes it too sour in my opinion. Does anyone have a recipe, or a link to one, that does not include vinegar of any type?
    Thanks,
    Lisa

    Instead of the vinegar, use lemon juice.

    Also, I usually do memphis style bbq, with a dry rub.

    Or you could do steaks? Surf and turf?

    I am freaking out so bad about this I didn't even think about a dry rub! This is my first time cooking primal for others so I really want it to go well. Awesome idea

    Go surf & turf route (if fam can have fish). Can't miss with bacon wrapped scallop skewers, baked (scallops soak in bacon goodness better that way) to perfection with seasonal veggies. Get earthmomma's rub from my post about spareribs. It's very mild and helps critter get just a little bit of extra flavor

    Thanks for the endorsement Dr. Bork Bork. If you want to jazz it up next time, throw in some powdered ginger and chili powder. Give a really nice kick.

    Oh, thanks for the reminder. I have some ribs in the freezer that need to be eaten. And a pork belly too. As further endorsement of the dry rub, I tried it on a pork loin the other night, popped it in the crock pot and it turned out fabulous.

    Yeah, I got myself my own rack that I cooked up yesterday for today's lunch. I added cumin to it for smokiness

    I LOVE pork belly. I last made a decidedly un-primal Vietnamese caramel sauce and basted it with that while slow cooking. I liked-to-a-died it was sooooo good. I need to figure out a sauce with less sugar. When I lived overseas I would buy "speklapjes", or bacon steaks, which were basically pork belly chops. Really good on the grill or just fried up with a bit of salt and pepper. If I can get a small enough one I may have to slice it into steaks to fry up.

    spicy bbq shrimp sauce.

    2 chipotle peppers with a tbsp of the adobo sauce Chopped fine or use a stick blender to puree
    zest of one lime
    juice of 2 limes
    1 or 2 cloves of garlic pressed or chopped fine
    olive oil

    marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes or so skewer and grill

    Serve with slices of grilled lime and garnish with some chopped scallions.

    This will do about 12 16/20 shrimp. Adjust amounts as needed.
