    Default McRib Quest


    Yes, I'm planning to do it. I am going to find a McRib sandwich and
    cross my fingers it's just like it used to be: A real piece of rib
    meat minus the bone. There were actual pockets where the bone used to
    be; it wasn't that pathetic ground pork patty with fake grill marks
    they tried to pass off as a McRib later on - but at 29 grams of fat, I
    think I'll limit myself to just one.

    My quest begins here http://kleincast.com/maps/mcrib.php Supposedly
    ALL McDonald's locations will be selling McRib sandwiches through Nov.
    14... but that remains to be seen because the two McDonald's closest
    to me aren't on the map yet.

    I think I'm one of about 4 people in the world who has never had a
    McRib and don't plan on ever having one.

    Damn. Doesn't look very hopeful, does it? Those 29 fat grams are
    screaming ground meat to me too.

    Don't do it! There are so many wonderful ways to create a great rib and so
    many cooks here. If you've a need for a rib sandwich, I'm sure we can get
    you there. The McRib? Gag a goat. Polly

    I have been in McDonalds maybe a half dozen times. The last two times
    were on hot summer nights and I went through the drive thru and ordered
    a milk shake, only to be told the machine was broken. I did not like
    their food. Maybe they got better. I will never know, but I doubt it.

    To be perfectly honest, that "glued" crap doesn't matter to me. I am
    simply looking for the original McRib, not a ground up shadow of it.
    What other people choose to buy is up to them.

    Actually, Polly, the original was good. That's why I was hoping this
    was it.

    Be glad you couldn't get a "milkshake". The last time I bought one,
    it hadn't melted hours later.

    I never tried one of those when they were real. What is the attraction?
    I've been making really tender pork lately, be it chops or country
    style "ribs" and any of the cuts I've been cooking could be eaten in a
    bun if I wanted it that way. I just don't get the hype of the McRib.

    <shrug> It was real meat and it was tasty. Why do you go to a rib
    joint or a sandwich joint for food?

    Simple. They are not a hamburger, a change of pace from the routine. Many
    people eat out because they are travelling or otherwise not at home to have
    a sandwich that you can make. Unless you can offer an alternative to
    everyone that has to stop for a bite to eat, the McRib will sell.

    McD tried to sell a Philly cheesesteak. It got laughed off their menu in a
    month or so. I bet the McRib got laughed out of Memphis in no time flat!!!

    McD even tried to reintroduce the McRib last year "for a limited time
    only!" HA!!!

    The McRib can't possibly be real rib meat. Probably just pressed/formed pig
    scraps dripping in a chemically flavored BBQ sauce. How is it they all look
    identical?!!

    McD has never been and will never be known for food excellence!!!

    I'm one of the other three... never had one. Not that I wouldn't try
    it, but McDonald's is far down on my list for hamburger joints.

    I think you left out the 'billion' after the 4. I'll make the
    vegan ribs with cedar 'bones' [p140, "The Complete Guide to Vegan Food
    Substitutions"] before I'd order a McRib.

    I've never had a McRib. (I don't think I ever knew there was a McRib that
    wasn't made from formed pressed meat of some kind.) As for the milkshakes,
    when I was a kid they were a rare treat and McD's made good ones. A few
    years before my mom died we were in town one day when she got a craving for
    a milkshake. First thing that came to mind was McD's. She was absolutely
    shocked at the price! (I don't remember the exact price but it was close to
    $4.) She had no complaints about the milkshake itself. It was so thick
    she needed a spoon, but IIRC they always made thick milkshakes.
