    Huh, I would have thought klflowers would be the one to share this breaking, Earth-shattering, oh-so-not-fake news to the group. His internet must be down...

        I tried one when they first came out in our market area, gotta be late 70's/early 80's, and it was pretty awful. Maybe they're better now, but once bitten, twice shy.

      Maybe I'm an oddball on this but I have never in my life eaten a McRib. dig the commercials and concept but I'm a Big Mac guy.

      also, if you haven't seen it, this film is worth a view. Great cast.




          Mc Wib? Hell no. Thanks.


            I will admit while I am not a fan of the McRib especially. I do like the BBQ sauce they use on it.
            McRib seems a decent value but I am astounded at the $7 so called fish sandwich they are actually able to sell.

              Although I will be indulging in the ol McRib, the only thing I ever eat at Mc'Ds is the Filet-O-Fish. $7 must be the new McSea Bass one...

              Near my house right now the 2 for $7 is running as the 2 for 1 special.

            I’ve never had a McRib but the last couple of years AR reviews have had me intrigued. Unfortunately, I won’t wait in line. I don’t know about McDonalds’ outside of my sphere but 20 - 30 minute waits are standard for McMuffins/Big Macs around here. This has nothing to do with demand - staffing issues.

            I still remember the “if you aren’t served within x minutes, your meal is free” days.

              I remember when McDonalds actually made a reasonably good hamburger.
              I will give my age away here and also remember a few other burger places that seem to have disappeared.
              Griff's Burger Bar at 10 for a dollar.
              Big Scotts - they specialized in burgers and a very good milk shake.
              And my all time favorite for late night dining was Sambos.

                Never had one never will.I really try to avoid fast food places.


                  Watching TX-OU, Arbies has a commercial for the Country Rib Samage!
                  Looks ok, not as messy as the McRib

                    no worries - I mostly wanted folks to be able to see the video

                  I have never tried it. I guess I should to see what all the fuss is about. I do Meatheads version all the time though. Great way to use up leftover ribs.


                    Hey remember everybody,
                    ITS NOT A WIB , it’s CWAP!


                      Not one th Die Hard Fans of th McRib, but I'll eat em, when in season...they are what they are; nuthin more, nuthin less. (Same As It Ever Was) They ain't never pretended to be otherwise.

                      Those ya what ain't never tried one, try ya one, fer Cripes Sake.

                      Don't open th box with any kinda cork sniffin negative bias, remain objective.Yer not at my pit, nor yer own. Be fair. Be objective, an scientific.

                      Write a review, if ya want...this is how Science advances.

                      Then, form an Edjumacated Opinion.

                      Love it? Great? Hate it? Great, as well. Yer call, faux chaux, hauxs.

                      This site is alla bout th Science of Food. Yes? No?

                      Formin a (prejudicial) judgement, havin never investigated th subject matter is decidedly Non-Scientific, an any output derived by this method is invalid, an useless to th rest of th Scientific Community.

                      Me? Where do I personally stand, on th McRib?

                      They otay, when at best; ~meh~ when not, which is true of every single visit I've made to McDonalds, an every menu item ever ordered....

                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
