Behind the Recipe

Nothing So Sweet As Southern Hospitality

Just outside Macon we pulled off at a roadside BBQ tent. It was hotter than hot but we didn’t care. They plucked peaches from nearby trees, braaied them, and mashed them into a spicy-sweet, sticky sauce that changed the way I looked at ribs forever.

As you can probably tell, these aren’t your everyday ribs. No, we’re bringing in a couple of unconventional ingredients to put a spin on your standard fare. Don’t worry, we aren’t messing with greatness here—we’re merely adding to it.



  • 1 rack baby back ribs
  • 2 ripe peaches
  • 2 cups ground espresso
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 bottle BBQ sauce


  • Add BBQ sauce, espresso, and honey to large mixing bowl.
