The secret of Lazarus Fuller's melt-in-your-mouth barbecued ribs was the sauce. "My father never believed in buying barbecue sauce," said Linda B. Watson. "He made it himself. "Right now, I have several bottles of his barbecue sauce in the cabinets. I'm going to keep them. " Fuller, a former shipyard welder and Social Security employee, died in his West Philadelphia home on Monday. He was 71. Fuller was born to Lazarus and Linnie Lee Isler-Fuller in 1924 in Kinston, N.C. He attended public school there and was baptized at the St. Augustus AME Zion Church.

Memorial Day Weekend is the official opening of grill season. That black box on wheels may have been sitting on the deck all winter, alone and all but forgotten, but now it beckons. And oh how it promises. . .to free you from the kitchen, to bring you outdoors, to ease you into casual entertaining, to make eating at home fun again. You say you're no grill wizard? Relax. You don't have to be as long as you know a few of what Ron Washington calls "tricks of the trade. " Washington has owned Ron's Ribs, 1627 South St., for 18 years and bottles and sells his own secret barbecue sauce ("Everyone's a barbecue expert when they put Ron's Ribs sauce on," he jokes)

If you're looking for some good barbecue sauce for your cookouts, Fat Jack's BBQ & Blues, on Route 73 in Berlin, has some super fine stuff. Hot or mild, it has good body and excellent balance of flavors. And while you're there, you might as well have something to eat, as Fat Jack's actually is a restaurant. The barbecue sauce is something it simply packages on the side, so when you go home and have your own barbecue, you'll remember Fat Jack's. This hot spot is a spinoff of the Fat Jack's in Vineland, with Jeff Denbo of Cherry Hill the operating partner.

IN LIFE, people always want to keep up with the Joneses. But not James Jones, who allegedly stabbed his dog to death with a 30-inch samurai sword (July 16). The mere mental image is enough to give a child nightmares for years. I realize that this will be labeled nothing more than animal cruelty, and will draw a fine and perhaps some jail time. Funny, but I thought the definition of murder was when you killed something. If it were a child he did this to, he'd be looking at the needle.

If you've been without power at home, you'll soon be making decisions about what to pitch from your refrigerator and freezer. Here are some tips: A fully packed, free-standing freezer that has remained closed will stay at acceptably cold temperatures for two to four days. The following partially defrosted foods may be safe to eat/refreeze if they still contain ice crystals or have been kept below 40 degrees: beef, veal, lamb, pork, ground meat, casseroles, soups and stews, hard cheeses, juices, flours, nuts, packaged waffles and pancakes, frozen meals/convenience foods.

What you'll find: Their motto is "globally inspired gourmet comfort food. " Their menu is basically pork, pork and more pork, with the perk that it's hormone-free and organically pastured, from Leidy's, in Souderton. Come hungry: This is no place for dieters. And better get the stain-stick ready. Sandwiches come heaping, dripping and greasy - in the best possible way. The details: The Western is smoked pork, sharp cheddar cheese, thick-cut bacon and barbecue sauce ($9); Penguin's Pub is smoked pork, provolone, sautéed onions and jalapeño relish ($9)

The burger gourmet insists that there can be no comparison between a patty made of ground turkey and one of ground beef. I tend to agree. Even with exotic sauces and seasonings, a turkey burger is tight-textured and on the dry side, while the beef burger is succulent and juicy, without ketchup and just a pinch of salt and pepper. What's a fat- and cholesterol-conscious burger lover to do? Consider a combination of ground poultry and beef. An acceptable ratio for taste as well as content is two parts poultry and one part lean ground beef.

Reflecting the growing interest in the American Southwest, Austin's Rib and Steak House has set up shop in Bristol. Opened in February just a mile from Interstate 95, the restaurant has a bright, airy Southwest decor and an informal menu that leans heavily on barbecued ribs and chicken for its primary culinary statement; alas, the message is only moderately successful. The spacious dining room is flooded with light from a large skylight and narrow strip of heavy, 1920s-style translucent glass, framed with red and green neon rods.
