Making Super Bowl Weekend Super, No Matter the Score

Published Date: Jan 28, 2013

Super Bowl Sunday can signify different things for different people. For some, it's the heat of the competition, and waging bets with your friends. For others it's the commercials and trying to guess which one will be ranked #1. For some, it's a day dedicated finding to the perfect spot to watch TV. But if you're hosting the party, it's all about the food and entertainment.

Outdoor fireplace and outdoor tv under a pergola covered patio

Whether your team wins or loses, you can host a winning party in your own customized backyard. With seating around your BBQ island, your guests can help themselves to hot food right off the grill and cool beverages from the built in refrigerator to enjoy around the bar. Keep the party outdoors with a weather-proof television in your outdoor kitchen or under the pergola. With a backyard this entertaining, you won't need to do anything else but enjoy time with friends and family while watching the game.

For extra enjoyment, serve this party favorite recipe from celebrity chef, Paul Dean.

  1. To make the rib rub, combine all the ingredients. Rub over the surface of the ribs to coat.

  2. Preheat a BBQ pit or an oven to 250 degrees F.

  3. Rub both sides of the rack of ribs evenly with the rib rub. Place on the pit or in the oven, bone side down.and roast for about 3 hours. About 15 minutes before the ribs are done, turn the rack over and let the other side get some color. (in the oven, turn the ribs occasionally, then broil to brown.) When the ribs are done, the rack relaxes and droops when you lift it at the center. Cut the ribs parallel to the bones and serve with lots of napkins.
