Ribs generally refers to pork ribs. They are extremely popular in the Southern United States
, where they are prepared by smoking. BBQ ribs can tempt the most disciplined vegetarians. In a social setting, it is polite form to ask guests “Hey, want a rib?”, to which they will most certainly reply “yes.”
Ribs are excellent. They are usually covered in barbecue sauce
, and have been cooked so long that the meat “falls off the bone”. Because of this, ribs can be eaten in singular fashion, which nearly always enhances a snack’s popularity. Ribs are extremely messy and offer the eater a primitive experience.
