Everyone has a story: Here's ours...
"Uncle Mel" Plotsky started making his award- winning Baby Back Ribs and Barbecue sauces in 1986 at his late, great Ribman's Barbecue House in Evanston, Illinois. This restaurant was just the start to the journey that has brought you some of the finest ribs in the world!
Since then Uncle Mel has become renowned all over the world for his cooking! We have always taken great pride in producing only the finest quality barbecue products. All of our wonderful sauces are home-made from scratch using all natural spices. You'll NEVER find any artificial flavors or MSG in Uncle Mel's products. Just great taste!
Mel has also traveled to far away places (and some in the next county!) to find some of the most exciting and interesting ingredients, recipes, and utensils, tips, and secrets... all so that you can cook like the masters from the convenience of your own kitchen or grill! We know your tastebuds will pat you on your back. And thank you while asking for more!
