    I do not like brisket.  I have tried and tried and just never made or had brisket that knocked my socks off.

    Why would you cook brisket when beef ribs are a thing?
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    And my view is why would you cook beef ribs when pork ribs are a thing, and less expensive!

    By the way, the inspiration for this thread are some SRF beef ribs I smoked today.  They’re great, don’t get me wrong, but they’re almost too rich.  A couple of cubes and I’m done.  Whereas I cannot stop eating the pork ribs I make.

    Kurobuta pork ribs are amazing!  Tiny, but amazing.  I like their pork chops more than most steaks.

    Stick burners produce better beef ribs, pork ribs and brisket (pork butt for a follow-on post) than the BGE.  
    Sweet Baby Rays does not deserve to be offered as a sauce for any Q.  And as a side bar, if cooked right no sauce needed.  
    I was with you until Sweet Baby Rays, that must be the unpopular part of your opinion.

    I don’t think any of that is all that unpopular, Frank.  Most here probably agree.

    All bbq is overrated. No bbq would make my “last meal top 10” list.  
    I can agree with perhaps the top 5 but can't stretch it to 10.

    Those who only consume and don't cook it think it's easy to nail the outcome, regardless of the protein.

    So the post in this thread that receives the most "disagrees" wins, right?

    I agree.  We find less is better, don't care for smoking wood at all. 

    Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.
