Fried chicken. Grouse will do just fine instead.

I don't eat seafood so shrimp it is.
 
2020-06-28 12:41:01 AM  
What kind of ribs? Pork? Then that.

Shrimp, easily.

Forget recycling.  Forget electric vehicles.  Forget solar panels.

The best thing, bar none, you can do to help the environment, end slavery, and reduce greenhouse gases would be to never eat shrimp again:

Shrimp - never developed a taste for it

Shrimp are 100% gone.

Screw the sea roaches.

Ribs. As long as that doesn't count McRibs.
 
2020-06-28 3:00:06 AM  
Ribs. They are ok, but it is a lot of work for not a lot of meat, and they have to be cooked just right.
 
2020-06-28 4:05:13 AM  
Shrimp. I don't eat invertebrates.
 
2020-06-28 4:43:59 AM  
Steak. I haven't had a steak in 15 years.
I just don't like them.

Shrimp. That industry, both farming and wild caught, screws our oceans so fantastically, so completely, that they spend hundreds of millions of dollars per year to keep it quiet. Their lobbying effort in Washington is the largest, dwarfing big oil and tobacco combined.

I love shrimp. But I can do without.

I love shrimp but you seldom hear of allergic reactions to chicken pork and/or beef.

I eat shrimp, sometimes I get hives, so I try not to eat very much or very often. I can live without 'em.

(Them other things aren't very good for you either, but I love them too.)

Fatty fat ribs. Rubber fat, dripping grease, wasted sauce hiding no meat, just fat on bones, like the butchered a Wal-Mart shopper.

Dry, overcooked ribs, stringy, no sauce, because bbq wars, and that's how we do'em here, Yankee. Biting into a jerked meat hard packed protein floss.

Poorly butchered with slivers of surprise bone here and there.

Runny, watery, vinegar sauce, that stains like a 79 dollar/gallon bucket of Cabot deck treatment but won't cling to that rail of meat hidden under a mountain of blubber.

Fried chicken. It's never as good as I think it will be, so I'll go a year or more before I want to have it again. I know I'm not alone in this. My friend asked me nearly 30 years ago "The problem with KFC is you're always really psyched to walk in, but always walk out feeling like shait."

/I freakin' love KFC's coleslaw, though. I go there to just get coleslaw.
//I know there are other fried chicken places than KFC, but most of them bloooooow.
///Want to try that Popeye's chicken sandwich, though.
 
2020-06-28 8:09:49 AM  
I was going to say ribs because there's always too much sauce but now you all are making me feel guilty about shrimp so shrimp.

Shrimp.

We need to eat less meat in general though, for health, for animal welfare, and for the environment.
 
2020-06-28 8:47:52 AM  
I don't eat steak, so it's gone...
 
2020-06-28 8:49:29 AM  
Ribs.  I love ribs, but they are messy as hell, and brisket is my go to bbq anyway, so I would miss ribs the least.

see, now. all the other farkers telling the evils of skrimps had most-convinced me to give up my generally-vegulon ways of eating invertebrates, one of the few proteins I am allowed.

but holy-wow did you almost convince me back to the dark side, everything you wrote sounds farking delicious to my tiny misguided soul (look, no, I recognize /s and #poeslaw but I am not even being snarky right now I would eat a McRib in a heartbeat.)

/pritty-shure I would go to an entirely all-pork diet if ever I failed my veglegonism.

Ribs- fatty, little meat, a pain in the ass to cook and eat.   And for everyone saying shrimp are terrible for the environment, you're right.  But nowhere near as terrible as beef

/Kind of a false choice anyway- if you have steaks you're going to have ribs unless you have some really weird cows
 
2020-06-28 8:54:58 AM  
Shrimp.  They're boring.

The rest is my dinner almost always.
 
2020-06-28 9:10:03 AM  
Ribs. I don't understand the zealous appeal.

The shrimp thing bugs me because I enjoy a 55 gallon drum of peel n' eats every once in a while but the do WRECK environmental havoc.

/REEK - pet peeve

Shrimp.

I'll never understand the appeal of eating basically a huge, bottom-feeding insectoid with a carapace. That goes quadruple for crab and lobster.

Frederick: What kind of ribs? Pork? Then that.


This.

If it's pork ribs, then fark em.

Pork gives me bad gas.
 
2020-06-28 9:12:16 AM  
Very tough. If I had to choose I would say ribs. I love all four of them.
 
2020-06-28 9:13:57 AM  
ribs or fried chicken

My instinct is to get rid of the narrowest category.  Ranking these options in those terms:
1. Fried Chicken - A specific preparation of a specific animal's meat
2. Shrimp - A specific animal prepared however you like
3. Ribs - A specific part of a non-specific animal, prepared however you like.
4. Steak - Pretty much any red meat

So excluding fried chicken means I could still have chicken parm, but excluding steak means a fundamental dietary change.

That's my instinct.  But apparently I just found out how much I love fried chicken because I choose shrimp.
 
2020-06-28 9:22:05 AM  
Shrimp, purely because I don't eat that shiat.

GF says steak.  I.m starting to think she doesn't love me.

You mean Beach Spiders and Water Scorpions?

/Don't actually go out and ruin people's love for crab and lobster please

///But you're not wrong
 
2020-06-28 9:24:52 AM  
Oh, and jokes on us because we're all gonna be nomadic entovores in 50 years anyway.  Won't have to worry about other people eating Beach Spiders when you're out scrounging up a cricket dinner for your family.

I will not play your silly game, subby!

All of those are awesome and should be celebrated.

Chicken if I can keep other fried fowl.

The spirit of the question suggests I cannot. So I have to choose ribs. I love them but I eat them the least of those on the list.
 
2020-06-28 9:33:05 AM  
I read the question from an odd "which one should be gone if those 4 things were all I could eat?" standpoint and chicken has to stay because it's the only one that doesn't give you gout if eaten to excess.

So shrimp it is.
 
2020-06-28 9:33:21 AM  
Fried chicken because I can't eat it anyway (intolerance)

Dave and the Mission: Ribs. As long as that doesn't count McRibs.


They don't count as ribs.
Honestly, I don't know if you can count them as food.

Still, I love that mystery substance covered in bbq sauce.
 
2020-06-28 9:35:09 AM  
Shrimp. I don't eat a lot of the other stuff but when I do I enjoy them.  Shrimps are meh.
 
2020-06-28 9:49:13 AM  
A special shout out to the meat market folks who facilitated this little fun time we're having right now.

And by shout out, I mean, YOU IDIOTS!

Do we still think it was caused by meat?  I can't keep up.

I used to agree. I didn't like ribs at all until I was in my late 20s. He ones id always had were dry and stringy. I didn't understand the obsession. Then, one day, I had some good ribs. Really good. Just mind blowing. And in that moment, I realized a) I'd always just had poorly cooked ribs, and b) it had become a self fulfilling prophecy of sorts, where I'd gone so long without trying them that I just believed I didn't like them.

Now, I still rarely eat them at a restaurant unless it is known for its ribs, but I do love going to a good BBQ joint. And I like to smoke them at home a few times a year.
 
2020-06-28 10:03:15 AM  
Ribs.

F*ck them all day, everyday and twice on Sunday.

Fried chicken would be second.
Shrimp after that.

But I will kill everyone of you muthrf*krs if you try to take my delicious dead cow from me.
 
2020-06-28 10:23:34 AM  
Shrimp. Last I heard the rest weren't harvested with slave labour (though Tyson factories come damn close).
 
2020-06-28 10:26:41 AM  
All of them. Stop eating so high on the food chain. You really aren't worth it.

lostcat: Shrimp.

That is a point. If they were land based animals I doubt we'd be eating them.
 
2020-06-28 10:35:37 AM  
Ribs, they're just a piece that was formerly thrown away until a cooking technique came along to save them.  You could do that with any tough cut of meat...hell, you could do that with chicken necks and get an approximate effect.
