SMITHFIELD, Va. – It may be the peak of grilling season, but it’s still the grilling season. That’s one reason why Smithfield just introduced a new line of Smithfield Dry Seasoned Ribs. Pre-seasoned in Bold & Spicy Southwest Style Peppercorn, the ribs can cook in less than two hours.

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.
• Sweet & Tangy Carolina BBQ Seasoned.
• Sweet & Smoky Kansas BBQ City Seasoned.

“Every region of the country has their own preferred BBQ style, and our new line of Dry Seasoned Ribs has a flavor for everyone,” said Dennis Pittman, senior director of corporate communications and public affairs for Smithfield. “They deliver the essence and quality of a meal at your local favorite BBQ restaurant – with the convenience of making them right from your own home.”

Smithfield Dry Seasoned Ribs are available in the fresh section of meat departments at supermarkets nationwide.
