"We are talking near perfection. Sweet Lucy’s ribs are among the best combination of fall-off-the-bone tenderness and sweet-and-smoky flavor that we’ve found yet. The ribs were meaty and juicy. The tomato-based sauce was pungent, a little bitter and as addictive as crack cocaine. I am not lying when I say that, having discovered I dripped some sauce onto my notebook, I lapped it right off." -Glenn MacNow, Rib Safari, 610 WIP
