My favorite day of the week during the fall season. 

Between leaf peeping, pumpkin perusing, apple picking, and watching football with friends, I would definitely say the latter takes the cider. Something about gathering with your best mates to cheer on your team as they score the winning touchdown is just so much fun!

BUT! The best part? Okay besides winning is all the food – otherwise known as tailgating! Please tell me I am not the only one that gets excited about copious amounts of cheesy, fall-off-the bone, finger-licking good food? Well, today I am sharing an easy, drool-worthy recipe that is the perfect addition to any fall football spread.

Have you ever tried lamb ribs? All I can say is that they are life changing. So juicy and full flavor that they have become the star of my tailgating gatherings. Now, you might be thinking, how the heck do I grill lamb ribs? I’m glad you asked! 

Ribs are super easy to cook on the grill. For this BBQ Bourbon Grilled American Lamb Rib recipe, I simply took my favorite barbecue sauce, mixed a little bourbon into the sauce to kick things up a notch, rubbed it all over the ribs and covered the ribs with foil. Next, you place the ribs on the grill over medium heat for about 2 hours. Remember low and slow are your friends here. 

After the lamb ribs are done cooking they will literally fall-off-the bone. I highly suggest tripling the recipe because these juicy fellows will go fast!
