A Texas-Size Taste of Barbecue – The New York Times

Summon your inner caveperson with this rack of Texas-style smoked beef ribs from Lewis Barbecue in Charleston, S.C. Three immense bones come thickly surrounded by succulent spiced and blackened slabs of smoked meat, enough for a Stone Age party of six. Newly available nationwide, they are shipped frozen and deserve a slow defrost overnight before you open the package, rewrap them in foil and bake for a couple of hours. Lewis is also selling pork ribs. Along with the ribs, a bottle of Lewis’s barbecue sauce could go on the table, especially the Hatch green chile flavor, the best of three.

Giant beef short ribs, $119.95; Hatch green chile sauce, $8.95 for 12 ounces, lewisbarbecue.com.
