According to Erik Trinidad, creator of fancyfastfood.com, the McRib a boneless pork sandwich shaped like ribs owes its cult following to the barbecue sauce its generously slathered in.
He says that without the special sauce, it would be nothing more than a oddly textured, bland sandwich and that anyone could make at home by pouring BBQ sauce over a regular hamburger patty.
However, this solution would merely be a compromise, since nothing can match the authentic McRib experience.
Trinidad, who specializes in making fancy dishes out of cheap fast food, thinks he could really class up the McRib.
Hed make a shredded pork-themed dinner garnished with lettuce perfect for a luau, and serve it alongside frozen mai tais with umbrellas, using only the finest Hi-C as a mixer.
