I know for sure that their double cheese burger is the worst beef ever. It smells horrible even when it is fresh from the counter. Let it stand for 1 hour and you will not wait to throw up

Strange response....

Maybe I don't like the sauce (I dont)....or the bread (meh take or leave)...or the meat itself (couldnt tell through that horrid sauce)....why would I be banned from eating a brat just cuz I don't like the mcrib? Maybe I prefer sourcing meat through local small farms who raise animals in a manner congruent with their nature (I do) with minimal processing, zero preservatives or additives. Perhaps I don't like fast food in general, and although I can't put a finger on why, it tastes completely innedible after not eating it for a while (true for many I know). Lotsa reasons really...main one is i make better food for my own tastes at my house in under 5 minutes. Like I said though....to each their own! Plenty disagree with me judging by how many of these things are sold.

I'll give you taste but minimal processing is a long stretch for even farm to table processed meats for any "natural foods". Based on the response you don't eat any of the processed foods I mentioned. Good for you.

Any processed or cured meat has been under the gun for nitrates consumption lately. Bacon, pastami, corned beef, salt pork, to the list. Canned veggies loaded with salt. Not to mention BBQ in general is not a healthy choice or even grilled foods creating carcinogenic PAH's on your food.

So you only eat unprocessed close to home meats and fresh veggies. We can all strive to follow your example. Cudos to you and hat off to the dedication.

Edit: I don't eat fast food either other than once a year because it's there.

As they say..."the dose makes the poison". No need to live only on pristine food and blessed water, but I do my best to choose my battles so to speak.

Beers in, mcrib out for instance!

As to bbq and carcinogens....well I view current discoveries through an evolutionary lens. We have been cooking meat over open fires since humans became humans so I'm not overly concerned on that one. Eating it with veggies helps, and in particular certain herbs and spices do as well.

As a kid I worked at McDonald's back in 1981 when the McRib was introduced. The pre-formed pork patty used to come in frozen and we would heat it up and hold it hot in a vat of BBQ sauce for service. Add pickles and onions, slap it on a bun, and you have culinary Nirvana!

The early 80's was a golden era for McDonalds innovation with Happy Meals in 1979 and Chicken Nuggets coming along in 1983. Both products are still popular more than 30 years later. I think continually bringing back the McRib on a LTO basis is brilliant marketing on their part.

Sadly the McDLT from the same period didn't make it (Keeps the Hot Side Hot and the Cool Side Cool!)

I'm not the biggest McDonald's fan, and I was always skeptical of the McRib. However, after seeing the video, it looks pretty good. If it wasn't for the fact, that I can't stand their bbq sauce, I'd give one a try.

You can get it without sauce.

I'm with ya man.

I very rarely eat lunch meat, never eat spam, rarely eat hot dogs, etc. I do eat bacon, brats, etc but pretty much only from my local butcher shop where they'll let me go and watch them make the stuff if I wanted to.

One of the big things to me is "natural and artificial flavors". I think that stuff fools your body and is the root of all food evil. When I get brats and bacon made by my local butcher shop it mostly contains ingredients that I would put in those items if I made them myself. Sure there is some nitrates in the cured stuff, but in limited quantities it's not gonna be what kills me.

To each their own. McDonalds is horrible for ya, but in limited quantities it won't kill ya. Just not where I choose to spend my calorie overload meals (which are admittedly way too frequent to be skinny!).
