View Full Version : Another rib vending ?

This may be a silly question but here ya go anyway. Are you putting sauce on all the ribs or leaving it off and then asking customers if they want them sauced or not? I am thinking no sauce unless the customer wants it on them.

I always glaze, chances are better that they all want sauce when doing vending. Also adds flavor and adds flavor.

We also "glaze" the ribs, adds some flavor and most people are expecting sauced ribs.
Adding sauce to ribs while they're on a platter is messy plus the sauce is cold and doesn't lay nice on the ribs.

YMMV! :biggrin:

Yep, we always put a nice sauce glaze on the ribs, on the grill, after the smoke. Not too heavy, then offer more sauce on the side.

Hmmmnnn, now I am craving ribs for some reason.....

I add enough to glaze as well, unless the customer request differently!

Last time I vended ribs - I left them un sauced, but I kept the sauce heated. That way it did not cool down the ribs.

Disclaimer---I do not vend nor cater. Both are a four letter word--"work". :oops:

With that said, every person (100%) who finds out I cook competetive or serious BBQ asks--"What is your secret sauce?" :oops:

To the masses, BBQ seems to be sauce, not BBQ as we know it.

Just FWIW.
