We like watching ribs-related videos, but we like them even more when our former SE intern Katie Quinn is in them! Now a web producer for the TODAY show, Katie talked to John Stage, the founder and owner of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, about how to make perfect low-smoked barbecue ribs. Start with a good piece of meat, get the fire real good and hot, spice the meat slab, then wait, wait some more, and—well, you may not agree with this part—sauce them up right before they're taken off the grill. "My Texan friends, I argue all the time with them about sauce versus no sauce. But I like sauce on it. I'll defend sauce to the end," said Stage. So, what side are you on? Watch the video and decide.
