Can you tell the difference between real southern ribs and fake processed meat pressed into the shape of a rib?
In this episode I travel with the Unsavory Adventures camera crew to Birmingham Alabama on a rib taste testing trip. Along the way we encountered a "rib sandwich" at a fast food chain. Oddly enough, the "meat" under the bun was shaped like a small rack of ribs, but it contained no bones. When we cut into the "meat", the inside resembled a grey sponge of indeterminable origin. Since these fake sandwiches were being sold nationwide, one member of our crew suggested we film a taste test at a southern rib festival to see if anyone could identify the fake ribs. So off we headed to St Petersburg for their annual RibFest (which included Rick Springfield and the Doobie Brothers as entertainers) and set up our taste test table outside the main gate.
Check out the video, the results of the taste test may surprise you.
Oh, and don't be fooled by the shot of me eating one of the fake ribs - I didn't swallow. - Barry
Please leave a comment - the crew and I would love to hear where you feel we should go next!
