Tony Roma's Red Hots $30.00 full slab
with corn and baked potato
Barbecue ribs must be the closest thing to the pleasures of chicken feet that your average Joe Blow will ever experience. It's not that far a leap really. It's messy and primeval, extricating flesh from bone with nibbling teeth, vigorous sucking and all-too-loud sighs of pleasure.
Complimentary warm baguette with herb butter
This is our second trip to Tony Roma's. The ribs here are always satisfyingly blackened to a caramelised crisp on the edges. We line our stomachs with warmed bread spread with grainy herb butter before our behemoth plates arrived, crammed to the edges with glistening ribs and a jostle of accompanying sides.
Blue Ridge Smokies $30.00 full slab
with baked beans and corn
It's carnivore paradise, a vegetarian nightmare, as we grunt our way through our ribs, side platters steadily piling high with stumps of bone licked clean. The beef ribs are stronger in flavour and much heavier than the pork version. The giant corn cob is a little soggy, but it's a welcome respite from the attack of protein and carbs.
The baked beans aren't as smooth and creamy as I'd like, but the baked potato is soft and comforting, and the chips are deliciously crisp.
Southern Smokey Beef Ribs $30.90 six-rib portion

Next on the rib radar is Hurricane's at Bondi. I've heard good things. I'm on my way!
