The Villa de San Jose de Palafox (Palafos, Palafoz) was an unsuccessful settlement on land that the Spanish crown granted to Mexican settlers during the early 19th century. Joaquín Galan received a royal land grant in Coahuila sometime prior to 1804. Galan’s tract was located on the Rio Grande in what is now Webb County, halfway between Laredo and San Juan Bautista Presidio. In April 1805 the property was turned over to Manuel Garza. In April 1810 Manuel Antonio Cordero y Bustamante (in accordance with the wishes of the Spanish king) condemned a large tract of land that included Garza’s property in order to establish a new town on the margin of the Rio Grande. It was named Palafox, in honor of Spanish general, Francisco de Palafox y Melci, who won distinction opposing Napoleon’s forces in Spain. Juan Jose Diaz was to administer justice and distribute land to settlers, mostly families from the older settlements of Coahuila, though no money was available to fund the construction of public buildings. The settlers themselves built a church in the center of town. The townspeople prospered by raising livestock, especially sheep and goats, and the town grew from almost 240 inhabitants in 1815 to 277 by the end of 1816. The townspeople, however, soon faced the possibility of depredations by In-

dians, predominantly Comanches. Though the Palafox documents give no indication of fear or panic, they do reveal an awareness of the need to be well armed. In April 1813 Capt. Manuel Garcia lamented the attacks of “barbarous indians . . . the theft and pillage which they commit,” the deaths they cause. Indians burned the village in 1818. Some families had returned by 1824, & in 1826 sixty soldiers were ordered to Palafox to build barracks, but the town was finally destroyed in 1829, with the massacre of most of its inhabitants. Attempts were made to restore it under the name of Houston in the 1840s, but by 1850 the name Palafox was again in use. The Palafox, Burkeville, Sabine & Rio Grande Railroad, chartered in 1854, was never built. In the 1880s there were two large stores, the Cantu and Alexander stores, at the site; a post office operated from 1886 to 1887 and again from 1905 to 1922. The 1910 census

JC’s Zesty Red Memphis-Style Pork Ribs Ingredients

For the ribs and rub:

Directions

3 racks baby back pork ribs (about 7 pounds), or 2 racks pork spareribs (6 to 8 pounds total) 1/2 Cup of JC’s Blends™ Zesty Red With Lemon seasoning 4 1/2 teaspoons dark brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons celery salt For the mop sauce (optional): 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper 2 cups cider vinegar 1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard 1/2 cup yellow (ballpark) mustard 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin 2 teaspoons salt

Prepare the ribs and rub: Remove the thin, papery skin from the back of each rack of ribs by pulling it off in a sheet with your fingers, using the corner of a kitchen towel to gain a secure grip, or with pliers. Combine the JC’s Blends™ Zesty Red With Lemon seasoning, brown sugar, celery salt, cayenne, dry mustard, and cumin in a small bowl and whisk to mix. Rub two thirds of this mixture over the ribs on both sides, then transfer the ribs to a roasting pan. Cover and let cure, in the refrigerator, for 4 to 8 hours. Prepare the mop sauce (if using): Mix together the cider vinegar, mustard, and salt in a bowl and set aside. Set up the grill for indirect grilling and place a large drip pan in the center. If using a gas grill, place all of the wood chips in the smoker box and preheat the grill to high; when smoke appears, reduce the heat to medium. If using a charcoal grill, preheat it to medium. When ready to cook, if using a charcoal grill, toss the wood chips on the coals. Brush and oil the grill grate. Arrange the ribs on the hot grate over the drip pan. Cover the grill and smoke cook the ribs for 1 hour. When the ribs have cooked for an hour, uncover the grill and brush the ribs with the mop sauce (if using). Re-cover the grill and continue cooking the ribs until tender and almost done, 1/4 to 1/2 hour longer for baby back ribs, 1/2 to 1 hour longer for spareribs. The ribs are done when the meat is very tender and has shrunk back from the ends of the bones. If using a charcoal grill, you’ll need to add 10 to 12 fresh coals to each side after 1 hour. Fifteen minutes before the ribs are done, season them with the remaining rub, sprinkling it on. To serve, cut the racks in half or, for a plate-burying effect, just leave them whole.
