Admittance to the County Line Hall of Fame requires the completion of a full rack of barbequed beef ribs known as the Big Daddy.  Unless you have been to Texas, odds are that you have not seen a whole rack of beef ribs, as most of the U.S. thinks barbeque is made out of pork.  Beef ribs are large: very large.  Finishing the Big Daddy requires courage, stamina, and a lot of napkins.  Finishing the side dishes that accompany the Big Daddy is not required, but is considered good form.

 

 
 

 


Note: Pat Kehoe's picture is between these two happy fellas.
 

 

 

 Dear Kim, Hope you agree this is good form. Yours Truly, Dean
 
 
 
County Line Hall of Shame
 
Sometimes it just ain't possible to eat that many ribs. In that case, you might make this dubious honor.
