I heard that rib BBQ have distinct 2 school of styles.  chewy and falling off the bone tender.

I prefer the tender ones 


Love Eastern North Carolina Vinegar Sauce but I use molasses instead of brown sugar.

Who prefers chewy meat?!? People are usually willing to pay extra to ensure a tender cut of meat (e.g. filet mignon and ribeye).

No. A correctly cooked rib is neither. On a correctly cooked rib, if you take a bite out of the meat, you should be able to bite all the way through cleanly. And, with a slight tug, the meat should come away from the bone cleanly. If the rib is under cooked, it won't bite through or it won't tug away from the bone but rather be chewy and stick to the bone. If the rib is over cooked, it will fall off the bone as you pick it up.

I hope you enjoyed them superhead! They don't look like the kind of rib I'd enjoy myself but that's just me. I'm a bit of a BBQ snob.

First, I look a more substantial rub on ribs. I prefer the common "sweet heat" to the rib. My rub has a substantial amount of sugar, a variety of other spices including cayenne. Next is I don't see a smoke ring. It doesn't look like the rib had time to cook down the fat or form a smoke ring. So in the end the "chew" isn't what I prefer. And I like a bit of "wet" or BBQ sauce to finish the rib. I'm not saying it's not a tasty rib. Lots of people will really enjoy it. It's just not my kind of rib.

If your not getting messy with BBQ sauce dripping all over than your bit eating Ribs properly. Just kidding! Finger Licking Tasty!!!

Sauce is good but like I said previously, I look for other things as well. I'm just as picky with the other stuff I cook. I do a lot of fundraiser stuff with BBQ now. Everyone that's had it will tell you I'm my own worst critic. LOL!! A properly cooked pigsickle is hard to beat.
