    Best Single Thing to BBQ

    I gotta go with pork ribs--though I alternate between St Louis style and baby backs. I love pulled pork, brisket is great too, but for me the ultimate BBQ is pork ribs. I'm thinking that there's a reason this site is called Amazing Ribs.

    What about you?

    Pulled pork, brisket, beef ribs, pork ribs. It's not that I don't like pork ribs, its just that I love the others.

      Pork spare ribs. When my friends invite me to a cook out they always ask for me to cook the ribs. Everyone loves em, so for that reason, that's my pick.

        Wow, that's a great question. I guess if I had to go with one thing above all else I'd choose baby back ribs although brisket comes in a close second. If it came down to only one thing that I could cook for the rest of my life though I'd have to go with the ribs. Dang, now you've got me thinking.

          • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

          Pork ribs, pulled pork, pulled beef, brisket and chicken all in that order.

            Whole brisket, pork ribs, pork butt, but man it's hard to choose. I'd say it generally depends on what I'm in the mood for but if I had to pick only one it would probably be brisket.

              • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

              I have always loved BBs, but actually starting to lean toward pulled chuckie!

              I'd have to say a whole packer brisket. Two different types of beef from, one cut, that are good sliced, pulled or chopped, sauced or unsauced, and taste great with just about any flavor profile you can throw at it.

                  For me it's A Whole packer Prime Brisket. I have so much fun with those things. Everything from the trim to finish. Its a labor of love to get it right, so when you do, it's the most gratifying of all to BBQ. Plus its can feed an army. There is just a special place for the Briz in my BBQ heart.

However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.

                    Besides a 7 bone prime rib, I would have to go with pulled beef.

                      Depends on your definition of "BBQ".

                      Single best thing to BBQ (high heat): a nice bone-in (cowboy) rib eye steak. a close 2nd is the classic all american burger.

                      Single best thing to BBQ (slow smoke): Ribs, Brisket, PB, Chicken, in order of preference.

                        Yeah, by BBQ, I mean low and slow and smoky. The other thing is grilling, IMO. I agree 100% that the best thing to grill is a ribeye, hands down. Also in the grilling category, I love chicken thighs or pork tenderloin done in a rotisserie basket. Whole chicken (spatchcocked or uncut) rotisseried is pretty darned good also. A good grilled Hebrew National giant all-beef or Polish dog can be hard to beat some days as well. Simple pleasures can be sublime.

                            Currently, it's beef short ribs, though after a couple of briskets, I sense a new addiction forming! I don't do much pork, other than St. Louis style ribs...
