Thread: Your preferred ribs?

    Default Your preferred ribs?

    Your preferred ribs?

    I'm invited to Famous Dave's tomorrow and figured I'd order ribs.

    Question is, since it's been over 15 years since I had them, what's your
    preferred ribs?

    Last I had was baby back ribs. Can't remember what I thought of them.

    Another question is what's a reasonable order (without pigging out) of
    different kinds of ribs? 1/2 rack, etc.? I'm not interested in setting a
    land-feed record, so-to-speak. Plus also taking into account corn on the cobb
    or other included side dishes.

    Beef/pork, don't matter.

    TIA,

    Andy

    Dimitri,

    I saw them listed on their website menu.

    A half slab plus sides? Full slab plus sides?

    Best,

    If it's actual BBQ, pork ribs that are not baby back ribs are the
    best (i.e. spare ribs).

    "Country-style ribs" are not entirely rib and they are also
    something to avoid, IMO, but they seldom appear on restaurant menus.

    Regular, not baby backs.

    Pork, of course.
    --------
    Away from a restaurant though, my preferred home-cooked ribs are:

    Marinate as long as possible in standard Chinese marinade--garlic,
    ginger, soy sauce, wine.
    Cook in 225-250F oven for 2 hours.
    Finish on med. hot grill, basting with melted butter mixed with soy
    sauce and just a little bit of honey. -aem

    Famous Daves has a sampler platter, so try to order that and share it
    with your dining companions. The ribs there are pretty good, both their
    baby backs and beef ribs, but I tend to favor the smaller baby backs.
    How many ribs to order is entirely up to you, it depends on how hungry
    you are, of course. A half rack is a huge portion for one person, it
    seems to me. I like to get the sampler platter and eat one or two ribs,
    a bit of the chicken, and some brisket.

    Had you actually *looked* at the menu before posting, you'd have
    known you have exactly *one* choice for ribs: Pork Spare Ribs.

    But if I were you I'd *insist* on the beef ribs!

    Beef/pork certainly does matter, my good man.

    I like St. Louis cut ribs these days, but things have changed and will
    surely change again. I'm not familiar with Famous Dave's ribs --
    apparently he could be a bit more famous -- but I'd order a side of
    ribs and haul any leftoves home if I though they were going to be
    good.

    I forgot about the half-order Alfredo-rant.

    Pork! Natch! I normally prefer regular spareribs (St. Louis style?)
    but I will eat baby backs if they're done right. It's just that most
    places I've had baby backs they're not done well enough for me. I like
    them to fall off the bone, or at least pull off easily. When I have to
    chew the meat off the bone I don't care for it at all!

    Well, I always order the biggest order I can afford and take home
    the leftovers. I've been places where 3-4 ribs is an order. I wouldn't
    order less than a half a rack even with sides. But if you're being
    modest in your eating habits just order 3-4 ribs if they have them
    available in the quantity.

    I personally prefer beef ribs!
    You may want to have a little of each.

    If the meat is falling off the bone, it's way too done for me. I like a
    little chew to the meat.

    A half slab plus sides is going to be a good amount of food. With a full
    slab, you can bring home left-overs for later. I much prefer spare ribs over
    baby-backs. A lot more bang-for-the-buck, and I think the flavor is
    superior.

    Dave,

    Two weeks ago, I visited a "Famous Dave's" a town over and walked in and it
    smelled like a mix of Clorox, stale beer and other rot. I did an about-face
    and walked out!!!

    Ron's Rib's and Sweet Lucy's, two well respected joints (that I know of)
    here in Philly, only BBQ baby backs.

    Best,

    Andy

    Famous Dave's has gone national, huh? I think it started out in the
    Twin Cities. The food used to be excellent. We won't eat there
    anymore.

    There's a Famous Dave's nearby that has been there for a few years now.
    I went there once. That's says enough right there, doesn't it? And I
    really, really like BBQ too.

    Carol,

    Famous Dave's was a showcased segment on Travel channel's "Food Paradise:
    BBQ" TV show. I was impressed by all the 1st place awards they'd won! ! I
    looked up the website and used the store locator and one popped up nearby.

    Best,
