Where did you find the BBQ seasoning? I could not find it.

I used to get it from Frontier, but when I just looked for it online, I couldn’t find it. Maybe it was discontinued.
But, you can use any powdered BBQ seasoning.

I’m sitting here writing this comment while eating a vegan kale salad (your recipe and my favorite meal).

I made these bbq ribs for me and my 17 month old grandson. We both love them! My 82 year old mother loved them too. Easy excellent recipe.

I couldn’t find the bbq seasoning so I made my own: chipotle chili powder, smoked paprika, onion and garlic powder, a little ginger, etc. it turned out great.

Thanks again for another item for my weekly meals!

Oh! The cucumber onion salad is fabulous too. My father in ke had me try a cucumber salad he brought to the beach house during our vacation last week. His salad was full of oil of course because it came from a New Jersey deli. I made yours and added fresh dill (just to replicate his). It was so delicious!
