For all you proud Americans, this is another video I just completed for STIHL. I always enjoy working with everyone at this amazing company, but getting a chance to put Real-STIHL factory workers into this project was truly special. Even if you have never owned a chainsaw, or know what an American built STIHL product looks like, you’ll enjoy this! (click the gear on lower right for HD video)

FIL Tony’s Killer Ribs

My Father in law Tony makes the absolute best ribs I’ve ever had.

There are several factors that make his the best.  Number one is that he slow cooks them and they are always moist and tender.  Number two, the secret rib sauce he makes is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy.  Delicious.  He gave my brother in law the recipe and he keeps it locked up in a firebox.
