As we head into the peak of grilling season, BBQ enthusiasts will be looking to take their next summer cookout to the next level – and thanks to Smithfield, cooking up a juicy, flavorful rack of fresh BBQ ribs just got a whole lot simpler.

With the national availability of the all-new line of Smithfield Dry Seasoned Ribs, impressing family and friends with a pit-master perfected meal is now a cinch. Pre-seasoned in Bold & Spicy Southwest Style Peppercorn, these BBQ ribs will be ready in less than two hours, ideal for a convenient weekday dinner or weekend feast.

"When it comes to cooking ribs, my best advice is to always use high quality cuts of meat and to season them up just right with lots of flavor," said Tuffy Stone, professional pitmaster. "Smithfield's new Dry Seasoned Ribs take care of both the quality and flavor for you, eliminating the extra prep work, so all you have to do is grill them up and enjoy!"

In addition to Southwest Style Peppercorn, Dry Seasoned Ribs will soon be available in select markets in three regionally inspired BBQ flavors with national appeal, including:


  • Sweet & Spicy Memphis BBQ Seasoned
