Although I am a fan of both, nothing comes close to Texas Beef Ribs!

Texas Beef Brisket comes pretty damn close.

I wish I could make an animated GIF-like loop of audio where I sing you guys the bass line to the Pork song.

My 4 year old daughter knows it, I hear her singing it sometimes.

I do love a good pulled pork sammy. Memphis-style BBQ is my favorite, but all of it is good

Plenty of good spots to get ribs in STL. I just had a slab with a double order of broccoli for lunch. Eat your veggies kids.

So who wants to educate the Australian?

Got a recipe for some BBQ ribs? I had some baby back ribs when I was in the US (because of Fat Bastard from Austin Powers) and yeah, they were pretty good! Possibly too much sugar in the sauce for me, but they were darn tasty!

About to put my weekly meat order in, maybe I'll get me some ribs!

I guess you didn't go to outback steakhouse while you were here? LOL

I think this place makes some nice Cue and I'm pretty sure they'll ship bottles of sauce. http://www.hogsfly.com/

haha no... I went to a LongHorn Steakhouse, it was near the hotel I was staying at. Thanks for the tip!

Got a couple of pounds of freerange pork spare rib on the way, let's hope the missus doesn't like them...!

BEEF

I don't dig on no swine. No religion or nothing like that. My uncle owns a hog farm in Kansas, they are just filthy animals. I can't eat anything that willfully, and joyfully, rolls around in it's own crap.

Hey cjmwrx - interesting stance on pork... out of interest do you insist on freerange beef?

4 1/2 hours later end up with this

And all the meat just falls off like this

Gotta be the pork. I tried beef ribs in Texas, but there's nothing like fall-off-the-bone pork ribs.

justmund...low and slow...that's the key. Well, that and a good rub.

No, but I do insist on grass fed beef. Corporate slaughter yards are disgusting. Unless they are using designs by Temple Grandin, I avoid their meat like the plague. THANK GOD, I have a Schnuck's close. They are VERY specific about the meat the sell, and are one of the only butchers/meat markets endorsed by PETA. Not, that I give a flying f&*k about that, but it does let me know what kind of Yard my beef is coming from.

Ah I see the US doesn't use the term "free range" for beef, but instead "grass fed" is our equivalent. I think it's very important that we choose where our meat comes from, especially after watching "Food Inc" the other night. Man, some of that stuff is crazy! Like you said, disgusting. 97% of US meat comes from feedlots:

http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/23/drive-for-grass-fed-beef/

I like how they say "conventionally raised" because it's totally conventional you take a plain roaming animal and stick it in a pen with a 1000 others and feed it food it's not supposed to be eating.

Good thing we're all becoming aware of this, and are being empowered to do something about it. Even Wal-Mart push organic produce! (sorry for the derail, I feel pretty strongly about this stuff!)

I like a good chunk of cow, but I only consider it ribs if it came from a pig.

Good article, and accurate on the facts.


Really, it's all about the rub and the sauce. Salt Lick BBQ, outside of Autsin. OMFG

Vincent: Want some bacon?
Jules: No man, I don't eat pork.
Vincent: Are you Jewish?
Jules: Nah, I ain't Jewish, I just don't dig on swine, that's all.
Vincent: Well why not?
Jules: Pigs are filthy animals. I don't eat filthy animals.
Vincent: Yeah but bacon tastes gooood. Pork chops taste gooood.
Jules: Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherf****r. Pigs sleep and root in sh!t. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.
Vincent: How about a dog? Dog eats its own feces.
Jules: I don't eat dog either.
Vincent: Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal?
Jules: I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.
Vincent: Ah, so by that rationale, if a pig had a better personality, he would cease to be a filthy animal. Is that true?
Jules: Well we'd have to be talkin' about one charming motherf***in' pig. I mean he'd have to be ten times more charmin' than that Arnold on Green Acres, you know what I'm sayin'?

It blocks sh!t. Try spelling it without the exclamation point.

I don't think it can anything about all the bullish!t but the proper spelling is certainly bleeped.

And motherf***er is on its way out.

Oh... and BEEF ribs. But I'll eat either.

justmund

Oh yeah I just didn't spell it properly so you could see the word I was talking about :)

Strange how you can't block wildcards, like *f__k*?

On a totally related topic, I'm seeing Parliament this Monday. Shut yo mouth!

Prefer beef, but do respect pork. Very hard to find top-quality smoked beef ribs around me tho.

HAHA Think about that every time this conversation comes up. Great scene from a great movie.

I will admit I do eat a nice pulled pork sandwich if it's all that's available. Smother that **** in sauce!

Looks similar to Alton Brown's recipe, if I remember correctly.

Smoking and slow roasting is the way to go for sure, but there are other ways if you don't have all that equipment. I make mine by boiling them in a mixture of cola and beer, with a ridiculous amount of soy sauce and liquid smoke and some spices, then finish on the grill. It might sound like sacrilege but it's really awesome.

OK did a dry rub, I'm going to leave them overnight "marinating" then the missus can chuck them in the oven 4 hours before I get home. I'll finish them off on the BBQ and then see about eating me a pound or more of meat!
