Watch Irish People Try American BBQ For The First Time

Earlier this year, a video was posted showing Korean girls trying American BBQ for the first time. Now, the folks over at Facts. posted a video showing Irish people trying American BBQ for the first time.

When we say try American BBQ, we mean the entire experience. The video shows them trying more than just smoked meats. There’s biscuits and gravy, burnt-end beans and pretty other foods associated with American BBQ culture.

You may best know the channel for filming reactions of Irish people as they try American foods, snacks and beverages for the very first time.

Check out the video while we go track down some ribs.

15 Foods That Define America, According To The Rest Of The World

Everyone has an opinion when it comes to American food. A few weeks ago, we shared a video showing Korean girls trying American barbecue for the first time and what their initial impressions were.

What we spent most of our lives eating in the US is a completely different experience for those living on the other side of the world.

A question was recently posed on Reddit asking what non-Americans would consider American food. Growing up in the US, there are a TON of answers that immediately popped into our heads.

Pretty cool to see what folks from other countries consider the symbol of American food.

After He Ate Her Ribs, This Man’s Sister Came At Him With A Butcher Knife


One’s barbecue dinner can be a very intimate experience. There’s nothing quite like the feel of soft warm BBQ sauce on your fingers as you nibble on a juicy piece of spare rib. For one woman in Texas, losing out on that experience was enough to go after her own brother.

Austin Police arrested 61-year-old Ethel Jean Banks with an aggravated assault charge for allegedly attacking her brother. The reason behind this attack? He ate her barbecue ribs.

Fox Baltimore reports that Banks took a butcher knife to her brother on the evening of Sunday, Sept. 27. When he spotted his sister coming at him, the victim booked it out of the house and called the cops.

Police arrived and arrested Banks who was also part of a similar incident a few months back.

In his defense, Banks’ brother says he didn’t know the ribs were hers.

TGI Friday’s Does a Rib Flight Trio, Lets You Pick and Choose


TGI Friday’s are offering customers a taste of their ribs without forcing them to commit to a single flavor. In their Rib Flight Trio, patrons can order three different flavors of ribs from TGIF’s existing flavor base. We wrote about the Bacon-crusted ribs a while back and it looks like they’ll be featured as a choice.

Customers can choose between Chipotle Smoked BBQ, sweet Memphis Rub, Applewood Bacon Crust, Tennessee BBQ or Jack Daniel’s. Each flavor will arrive in sets of two and will also come with seasoned fries and a ginger-lime coleslaw.

The Rib Flight Trio special will be available for $10 at all participating TGI Friday’s locations. However, the special will only be applicable to dine-in customers.

TGI Friday’s has been pretty generous with their $1 offerings as of late. Many may remember the restaurant chain offered a variety of endless appetizers, also for $10.

How to Make Maple Bourbon Glazed Short Ribs

Crown Maple Short Ribs

Are you a fan of rib falling of the bone and maple syrup-soaked everything? Of course you are, you crazy you. This recipe offers a decadent alternative to the usual grilled route (which is also an excellent choice, don’t get me wrong) and slow cooks the meat in a cast-iron pot.

More importantly, the method calls for a savory combination of maple syrup, try Crown Maple Extra Dark to get it right, and one of our favorite cuts of beef. If you’ve got a bit of time and looking to try something especially tasty, check out the recipe:

Here’s How To Make Jägermeister Black Cherry Ribs

Black Cherry Ribs

The 4th of July is approaching and for many, that means stuffing your face with as much grilled goodness and booze as you possibly can. Now, if you were able to accomplish both in one heavenly bite? Even better.

This recipe combines Jägermeister, black cherry soda and Sriracha to infuse grilled ribs with a distinct sweetness, while also carrying a satisfying kick. Once you’re done, you should have a fair amount of booze leftover, which makes for the perfect, ahem, liqueur pairing to this tasty dish.


Black Cherry & Jägermeister Baby Back Ribs


4 racks of baby back ribs
2 oranges, thinly sliced
2 red onions, peeled, thinly sliced
4 cups bbq sauce (see pulled pork recipe)
1 bunch mint, picked
1 cup orange juice
1 cup Jägermeister
2–4 cups black cherry cola

Rib Rub:

1/2 cup smoked black pepper
1/2 cup onion powder
1/2 cup ancho powder
1/2 cup smoked paprika
1 cup Sriracha (or favorite hot sauce)

Here’s How to Make It

1. For the rub: Combine all of the ingredients. Rub the ribs thoroughly so that all surfaces are covered.

2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and heat a grill to high. Grill the ribs on both sides to create a nice char and smoky flavor.

3. In a hotel pan slice the oranges and layer the orange slices and mint leaves on top of the ribs. Stack the ribs on top of one another.

4. Combine the bbq sauce, orange juice and Jägermeister and pour over the ribs.

5. Scatter the sliced onions over the ribs and then fill the hotel pan with black cherry cola until the ribs are nearly covered.

6. Place the hotel pan on the stove over low/medium heat until the liquid comes to a simmer. Cover with parchment paper and tinfoil and simmer in the 300-degree oven for about 2–3 hours. Ribs should be tender and almost fall off of the bone.

7. Remove ribs from the liquid and place on a cooling rack.

8. Serve with additional Jägermeister bbq Sauce.
