Quick rant

Last night I went out to dinner with my folks..my dad ordered baby back ribs and what he got should've been illegal ! They were greasy and bland. Im guessing they were boiled judging by the blandness and slimyness of them. They here supposed to have a honey garlic glaze, but the glaze didn't stick and was on the plate. He couldn't eat them. What are some people thinking ???? Ok, Im done now; rant off.

John,
To the average Joe that doesn't know Jack about what BBQ is supposed to be, look or taste like those ribs would have probably been great! To one of us, we wouldn't have fed them to our worst enemy! LOL!

I had a similar experience recently. I was out to dinner with my family and I ordered ribs. The wife and kids came down on me because they knew I wouldn't be satisfied with resturant ribs and I would probably complain to the staff and embarass them, ......................................... they were right!

I DO NOT pull membrane in my catering business! All else is pretty much the same though. I think John was prolly in one of those places where the do not actually "BBQ" their ribs, but rather "grill" them. I enjoy most barbequed meat if it is truly smoked , and am not generally very critical or picky! I could NEVER be a judge because I don't have a good enough pallet!
