The sun is out and I’m feeling all things SUMMER-Y! What screams summer fun more than a backyard BBQ? Not much! We have a fun twist on traditional BBQ that is our go-to during the summer months. It’s the mess that just keeps on giving. Our backyard BBQ is never complete without thinking of the messes, first! Kleenex® Wet Wipes Gentle Clean and VIVA® Paper Towels have been the first thing that comes to mind when we think “let’s BBQ!”

This little hack is quick, easy, and a great alternative if you don’t want to stand out in the blazing heat begging your ribs to cook just a little bit faster! It’s easy to toss together a few hours before lunch or dinner! Not to mention the smell, is just soooooo heavenly!

Dr.Pepper Slow Cooker Ribs:

What You Need:

1-2 lbs of beef/pork ribs
1 can of Dr. Pepper
1/2 cup of Brown Sugar
1 tbsp of Pepper
1 tbsp of Garlic Powder
Your Favorite BBQ Sauce

1. Make your RIB RUB (brown sugar, pepper, and garlic powder) and pat each rib with the rub. Duh!
2. Toss them in your slow cooker, pour in your DP and let them cook on high for 4 hours
3. Done! Remove from the liquid, add your favorite BBQ sauce and you are good to go!
3b. If you are anything like us good ole Texans, BBQ is not completely without… a little brisket and sides!

I think the mess is just the essence of a backyard BBQ! I have stood by VIVA® ever since I can remember because they just feel so good! I can’t tell you how many people take a second glance thinking they grabbed an actual hand towel! They stand up to even the craziest of messes, too. Our favorite “wet” hand cleaner and I mean this sucker can take you from drab to fab, REAL quick are these Kleenex® Wet Wipes. They are perfect for all of the sticky messes on hands, face, because trust me, as grown ups we are still no match for a bbq mess! I save these specifically in our BBQ section of our pantry. They are just that good.

I mean, it really doesn’t get much better than that. As a family, we love to really dive in to BBQ! It’s one of our all time favorite meals and the kids would definitely agree! Food really has a way of bringing people together and is really such a fun way to come together to celebrate a special occasion or someone that is important to you. Kroger and these brands are partnering to support the USO, which is an organization that helps veterans, too. If you get the chance to host your very own Backyard BBQ, be sure to invite a Vet close to you or someone you know to show your support!

(Let’s all give Tyler a round of applause. He handed the “honey, eat these ribs and let me take pictures of your messy face” extremely well!)

These two products paired together are my all time “must have” BBQ essentials. I grabbed our BBQ essentials from our local Kroger store in the facial tissue aisle!

Happy Grilling….errr…Slow Cooking 🙂
