At any given day, I would go for seafood instead of red meat. But if you put a rack of succulent baby back ribs in front of me, I wouldn’t be able to resist it.

One time, I watched an international food television show that featured a famous barbecue place in Detroit and I purposely included it in my travel itinerary just to get a taste of its grilled stuff.
