Just about anything cooked in a bbq is good. Meat, veggies, fruit...yum. I love ribs. But I think I LOVE pulled pork, beef (brisket, ribs & shoulder...and steak) & bacon more. Ribs would have to be more the middle child of BBQ. Also, I think when I've been out, I find that the item most places have that is not good (and most places have at least 1 thing that is not as good as the rest) are the ribs. Either under done or over done or really dry.
One thing that I recently had that was REALLY good was Beef Shoulder Clod. It was a wonderful mixture of smoky brisket flavor but was only cooked to a medium. Nice & pink inside and tender and juicy. I want to make this. Went to Restaurant Depot and no luck. Have to check with the butcher.
But finally what isn't good in the BBQ. If we weren't suppose to eat animals, why are they made out of meat?!?
