Turkey ribs are the best barbecue you've never had in Tampa Bay
In my quest to find the very best food in Tampa Bay, I pulled off State Road 52 in San Antonio and moseyed inside On Q Smokehouse Grill and saw on the menu an item that eluded me for 43 years: turkey ribs.
- I've eaten barbecue across the South, and this was a first. I called foodies I know to ask if they'd ever heard of turkey ribs. Nada. "They must be tiny little things," my mama said.
- Southern Living informs us that turkey ribs are actually a shoulder cut of meat, and they're typically considered a scrap piece. Shameful.
My take: These were moist and delicious bone-in "ribs," slightly similar in texture to a pork rib, but with a smoky turkey taste. I'm sold!
- Go get you some and let me know what you think.
