How do you eat your barbequed ribs?

I was just eating some BBQ ribs that I had cooked earlier in the day. One of my neighbor's kids looked at the way I was eating it and said I was being gross. But there's nothing like eating them with your bare hands, even if they're coated in sweet sauce.

So how do you eat them?
(I'm sure someone out there eats them with a knife and fork, using proper etiquette and technique…)

*I'm sure someone's gonna assassinate me for posting so many food threads…* :)

Fingers are proper etiquette! Rib places provide wet wipes. Fancy rib places provide finger bowls. ;)

The exception for me is if there are no bones or much more meat than bone. Then I'll bring out the fork and knife because it's easier that way.

(Some foods are meant to be finger food. My grandmother was horrified when she moved to Georgia and saw even the most notable high class people eating fried chicken with their fingers… She used silverware for everything, no exceptions.)

Yeah, totally!

Bare hands are the only way to go.

Unless you're OCD or have an issue with sticky things on your hands… which some people do. In that case, a big container of wet naps totally fix that problem. XD

I only use a fork at the beginning if it's too hot.
So I don't burn my fingers….just my tongue. =3

Yeah, I use my bare hands. For me, there's no other way to go with ribs.
Mmm… Now I want some. XD

my mom's a medical nurse and all that. so she always has like tons of fresh medical gloves in those tissue-like boxes and stuff. she's even left them over at my home at times as seeing she naps over here sometimes snice it's closer to work.

so yeah, sometimes I use those gloves for the times when I don't want to get myself too messy. just peel them off and throw them in the trash after you're gone. none of those napkin and or wet wipes nonsense for me. :)
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

I eat them…WITH MY MOUTH!

Oh come on, someone had to say that eventually, might as well get it out of the way, eh?

For srsly though, I'm with the Bare Hands Club. When do we get our laminated member ID's?

Is it possible to eat such food with a knife and fork!? Hands of course.

Well, it's possible. Once, at a bbq, I had a wad of meat with a piece of bone in it, and I actually cut through the bone and ate it. I didn't notice untill after I swallowed it and my mom mentioned that there was bone in it.

So yeah, even if it's boney it's possible! CUTLERY HAS NO BOUNDARIES!

This thread reminds me of that SNL skit with Will Ferrell as Harry Caray on Space: The Infinite Frontier. He asks Dr. Ken Waller if he would eat the moon if it were made of barbeque spare-ribs. So that's how I would eat my barbeque ribs, in space.

That's typically BBQ, red on the inside, black on the outside. Gives it that extra special BBQ flavour. Yum.
