Craig Rice OK, here we go on the Cilantro again. If definitely is either a love it or hate it thing. I am probably one of the few that could go either way from what I understand. I am not sure about the genetic though. My Dad could not stand the stuff, thought it tasted like CT PS. On the other hand, an uncle of mine, my Dad’s favorite, could not get enough of the stuff. I don’t know why I just don’t have any strong feelings for it one way or the other.
the casino and the BBQ ribs
the year was 1992 and i was passing by the casino and i saw a sign that said
barbucue ribs all you can eat $ 5.99
well thats all i needed to see i was sold !! i went into this fancy dining room sat down and ordered the ribs , while i was waiting for the ribs , i looked around and saw all these high society folks eating ribs with a knife and fork ( yea thats what i thought ) i eat a lot of things with a knife and fork, but ribs aint on that list !!! well in a minute or so they brought me my ribs and sides ( don’t ask me what the sides were cause all i saw was them ribs !!! )
they looked like they had been dunked in a 5 gallon bucketof BBQ sauce
i mean they were dripping with sauce. well folks i tore into those ribs like an F5 tornado , i was a chomping and slurping and awiping ( i never did even unwrap that knife and fork ) i tell ya folks i was happier that when grannie clampett 1st discovered moonshine , when i got finished with a bone is was so clean it looked like it had been through a $3.00 carwash
all them high society folks was a staring at me but i didn’t pay that any attention , they kept bringing me more ribs , my glass of coca cola had got so slippery from the BBQ sauce , i almost dropped it a couple of times
the fella next to me said " you look like your really enjoying those ribs " i said yes sir i sure nough am and kept on a chompin . after a while i had my fill and stopped eating, then i realized that the casino had made 3 mistakes (1 )they offered all you can eat BBQ ribs for $5.99 (2) they let me in the door (3) ( and this was their worst mistake ) they had snow white linen table cloths and napkins , that table cloth looked like something that should be hanging in a modern art museum , and i had BBQ sauce up to my elbows but fellas i tell ya i sure enjoyed them ribs
buy ya know something , i never did see that casino offer BBQ ribs again …i wonder why

calvin great story. Thanks for sharing
That’s the way to each ribs.
calvin Reminds me of the time ol Ronny, God bless his soul, came to town & a fried chicken dinner it was. He looked over to someone & asked if it was OK to eat that fried chicken with his hands & someone said, that was the only way.
