So, this week McDonald’s has brought back the McRib. Now for those of my readers that actually know me, you know that I can throw down some barbecue. People have raved about my homemade BBQ sauce and I have even barbecued for a wedding. There is a camp in California (Calvin Crest) where the program coordinator has been trying to perfect my sauce for the last 12 years. My mom, who is an expert, although would never admit it, is starting to use my techniques in her Q. She won’t admit it, but that is a fact.

Which brings me to the point of this blog. The McRib is back. The sauce is lacking, it has a tangyness that is weak, the pickles and onions are lackluster at best and the bun can be a tad pit rubbery, and I LOVE IT!

No one. Turkey needs a new agent, or maybe it has the same agent as the McRib where Limited Time Only is everything.  I’m just sayin …
