Alaska State Fair Barbecued Spareribs — The food is hearty, and barbecued ribs, served fresh off the fire out of a big metal tub, are a popular favorite. Corn on the cob, a big serving of beans, and two paper napkins are the embellishments. Carefully, you carry your plate over to the "Sluice Box," a Quonset hut with long tables, beer, and a neighborhood Western band. Everyone there is chomping on ribs and having fun.
Fennel-Pepper Back Ribs
— This simple Scandinavian-inspired rub enhances the succulent flavor of pork back ribs, and eschews the addition of a sauce. Serve with Dilled Cucumber Salad, potato salad and rye bread.
Fire Cracker Pork Ribs
— Cool down these zesty, spicy-hot ribs with a dipping sauce of blue cheese salad dressing and serve with crisp celery sticks and baby carrots.
