Sherri Williams


I would be very proud to serve up these ribs to any cowboy; actuall any body! LOL They have just the right amount of heat & sweet to satisfy your taste buds. I made it to McCcormick's Grillerhood Hall of Flame with a picture of these ribs. This is such a great honor for me because I love to grill and smoke just about anything. I hope that you will gives these bones a try. Cooking with Love and Passion. sw :)
