I like ribs. I think without them my torso would probably collapse.

I've had good ribs, I think a couple times I've had great ribs, I've messed up more than my fair share of ribs, and I've had a lot of just OK to flat out bad ribs.

Now I've done brisket a number of times and I think its turned out pretty dang good.

Usually I end up smoking pork butts, chicken, or fatties, but if it either brisket or ribs my preference is brisket (unless of course somebody else is buying them meat then I'll gladly smoke some ribs but you've been warned).

One of my pet peaves though is to go to a BBQ joint I've never been to, order the brisket and end up with pulled beef rather than the sliced brisket I was expecting. Not that I've got anything against brisket as pulled beef I just think if your selling pulled beef brisket you should include the word "pulled" when you write it down. Its only happened a couple times but always results in a "WTF is this?" moment when I had my mind set on sliced brisket.

I like pork ribs, but prefer PPork, beef chuck ribs, tri-tip and chicken...

It is odd how when you tell someone that you love to bbq they usually blurt out "Oh I love ribs!" Hmm, don't remember saying anything about ribs... oh well

I suppose you could slice the Brisket as thinly as possible, then wrap the
slice around a Rib....maybe even wrap a slice of Bacon around that, and
see if your taste buds can handle it.

I think a foil Un appreciation thread would be pretty entertaining.

I love ribs, but prefer pulled chuckie or pork.

Chicken is rising up the list for me as I get better at cooking it.

Although I do agree that it's a particularly peculiar trend, these UNappreciation threads.....I still say that YOU, Chris, are a farkin trouble maker!!!!

But, since it's so fun, I'll play along......

I only like ribs if they fall completely off the bone before I get them to my face. I prefer to par boil them and after they're nice and soft, sauce them and grill them until the sauce burns. Either that or the crockpot.

So, I don't know WHAT you're talking about. Ribs are great. These low'n'slow and/or smoked ribs are WAY overrated. And if they're pink then I ain't eatin pork will get you farkin SICK man! Pink=undercooked!!!!

Brisket......THAT is some good eatin.

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?!?

When does the BBQ UN-appreciation thread appear? We all know that crockpots cook much better than smokers anyway.

You know, technically, I can crank out some stuff on the kettle that is technically more "grilling" that can give BBQ a real run for it's money. Maybe this BBQ stuff really is over-rated!

I prefer chuckies to ribs, of course, a Picanha kicks them all to the curb
