    I want ribs REALLY bad. Are ribs from places like Sonny's TOTALLY bad for you because they're smoked?

    I get them dry, so no sauce on them.

    the source of the pork could be a concern, but part of the 80/20 rule take some fishoil to balance out the omega-6 to -3 ratio....I would be more concerned with the BBq sauce or marinade they put on it...if it's a dry rub I'd want to know too (ie no added sugar)

    If you order it dry, there's no sauce on it at all. It also says on the website that a lunch order of ribs has 3 carbs.

    The sliced pork has <1 carb for the lunch or dinner, so I&#39;m guessing it has to have a rub on it.


    Maybe the sliced pork would be a better choice then,

    sorry missed the part about dry at first...3 carbs is less than a gram...I think you are safe, especially across a rack of ribs...

    okay, so 12 cals...still not a lot if you look at the total cals consumed, plus the fat and protein intake too

    But are they smoked?


    Some fast food is actually "smoke flavour". It&#39;s never really seen a smokehouse.


    And what the heck else in there? MSG? glucose syrup? colouring? ...


    One the one hand, I think you could go a little crazy trying to make sure nothing was ever wrong or unnatural about your food. On the other, so much of what&#39;s on offer now is so unnatural that you have to keep making exceptions ... and it all adds up.


    Everyone has to make their own call on these things. It&#39;s a lot of work to make things from scratch yourself, but I tend to more now. I bet homemade ribs would be cheaper, healthier, and taste far better.

    Oh it IS smoked. It&#39;s a bbq restaurant, not a fast food place. That&#39;s all they do.

    One of my great joys now is pulled pork from "Smoky Jon&#39;s" here in Madison. I get it sauce on the side and add just a dribble. So Good I don&#39;t even miss the cornbread! I&#39;m sure the pork is grain-fed but I consider this an indulgence and count it in my 20%.

    I&#39;m no expert but don&#39;t alot of rib recipes require alot of brown sugar for color?


    I&#39;m basing this on the man v food series. Amazing what foods have sugar in, like coleslaw and pulled pork
