Ribs in Rock Center

Ribs in Rock Center

As the sun rose over Rockefeller Plaza last week, Steven fired up a half dozen charcoal grills to prep for a rib segment for Weekend Today. Pictured here: Lone Star Beef Ribs (with a tall neck bottle of Lone Star beer) for making the mop sauce. Also on the menu: First Timers Baby Back Spare Ribs and Country Style Ribs with Chilean Pebre.

So what’s involved in prepping for a show like Weekend Today? Here Steven goes over smoking the ribs with Food Stylist, Deb Winson, adding oak chips to the fire. The man in black in the background is one of the Today Show’s 3 resident firemen. Below a cameraman gets an up close shot of smoked beef ribs in all their glory.
