Smoking Ribs in My Backyard an Epulaeryu for Nancy

A rack of ribs bathed in smoke, Rubbed with lots of spice Tender meat falls off the bones Juice runs down your arm There’s no need for sauce Hickory Wood!
I should clear up the confusion. This is for a friend of mine, Nancy, who has asked me to smoke ribs for her birthday this weekend. It's a 7 to 8 hour process.

    OK T, sell your book at your BBQ joint and I'll buy the ribs too. I want the cook book too.

    Oh, so your wife isn't Nancy and you don't belong to the Dave Koresh cult where you can have tons of wives and cook ribs for them hours upon end? lol..Actually, Tony, I came back to peek and see what others thot of this finely written food poem. It is as thot, MOST EXCELLENT! Gwendolen

    Thank you for sharing Tony. You did pretty good with this Epulaeryu. Did you know a poet here at the Soup (Joseph Spence)created this form of poetry? I think one or two of his are listed in the form here at the Soup. You might want to check it out under forms. Love, Carol
