electricity19: JWideman: BitwiseShift: If you associate ribs with Christmas, what body part do you associate with Easter?I find it curious that northerners call anything that is cooked outdoors barbecue like "We're having a charity barbecue: there'll be hamburgers and hotdogs."In that case, I could imagine BBQ ribs being associated with just about anything.Because you use a barbecue grill. Why southerners associate "barbecue" with one specific food item is even more curious, especially when that one specific food item isn't the same throughout the south.It's not about barbecue being one specific food item. It's about method of cooking. Grilling, like for hot dogs and hamburgers, is relatively fast. Barbecue is veeeeery slow. What you guys call a barbecue grill up there just confuses us. It's just a "grill". Because that's what it does. It grills. You don't barbecue on one of those things....
MAYORBOB: Have these so-called marketing experts lost their mojo? I can think of a few other seasonal or special offerings:McGefilte Fish Sandwich -- HannukahMcSauerkraut Sandwich -- OktoberfestMcRefried Bean Burger -- Cinco de MayoMcLutefisk Sandwich -- Leif Ericson DayMcCamel Burger -- RamadanMcHaggis Burger -- Just in time for the Scottish GamesMcTurducken Sandwich -- Drenched in special sauce for ThanksgivingMcAss Burger -- Year round for all the Tea Partiers
scopecreep: I thought that they just waited for the pork belly market to hit the annual low before they started buying them.
NobleHam: I'd say it's more to give people time to forget what a huge mistake buying their last McRib was.
