My "McRib" Sandwich

GriffinGriffin Posts: 7,634

Turns out I had 4 ribs leftover from Saturday night

Plus a bunch of rib trimmmings from cutting them down to St.Louis style. I smoked these along side the ribs. ONce I got the meat off the ribs and the trimmings, I had a whole plate of meat.

What to do? Warm it up with a bit of sauce and make a "McRib" sandwich out of it.

So much better than McDonalds and at least I knew what was in it. :)

    Pickles are to me as bell peppers are to you.  Take them out, and I'll do a swan dive into that sandwich !

    Beautiful!  You got the pickles, onions, and the sweet and sassy sauce!  I think that's how the commercial went in the late 80's. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @Village_Idiot I would have happily made you one without pickles. :)

    @SmokeyPitt I don't remember the commercials, but I trust you. WOnder if they are on YouTube. Everything else is.

    That's awesome!
    I will try that next time I make some ribs. Just found your blog, too. You've been busy! How long have you been cooking on the egg? And I really like your blog, btw. It's bookmarked!

    Mickey "cooked" them at Salado, but somebody found the McDonald's box in the trash.

    @SmokeyPitt - I wish those video links would work on my stupid work computer. Stupid city needs to update our stupid software.

    Thanks @hapster

    Thanks @fiver29, they were pretty tasty. I got my Egg back around Thanksgiving in 2010 (but have been grilling/smoking since '97). Looks like I started the blog back in August of 2011 (had to go look that one up)

    [-X @Mickey, Mickey, Mickey what are we going to do with you. I think I heard about that @Village_Idiot.

    I think I tried a McRib one time. Must not have been too good cuz I never went back.

    I can't remember the last time I even ate there. Even then, it was a breakfast sandwich. It must be at least 6 or 7 years.

    I'll have to try Griffin's version soon to see what all the hype is about.

    I'd rather walk to Texas for Griff's than to walk across the street to Mcd's for that imposter

  • Great idea!  I always enjoyed the Mc Rib, but for the last few years I have been looking at the "Pork Rib" on that thing and wondering what else is in there.  So making ones own is a great idea!  Next I'll try making a Bell Beefer.

    This got me to thinking and remember a place here that had two very good items. First was a rib sandwich. This was with real ribs (two or three bone-in) on white bread. Second was a perch sandwich with a whole crisp fried perch (all fins/bones) on white bread. Place has been gone for many years but both were very good for lunch.

    My wife loves Mcribs. I can't stand them. I'll take one of yours without the onion.

    We used to have a local restaurant that cooked only on Eggs and served that sandwich! Called the Quarter Rack Rib Meat sandwich. Best darn lunch in town.
