Radical Root Beer Ribs

Tyler lives for the thrill of a great meal and one of his favorite dishes is ribs. Ribs need to be tender, succulent, meaty, and well-seasoned to meet Tyler’s standards. Having tried hundreds of rib recipes in the past, Tyler knows it's hard to find a great one. Great ribs start with a caramelized, flavorful and smoky meat. Tyler adds root beer to the marinade giving the ribs incredible flavor and the recipe Tyler’s signature Rad flair.
