It’s easier than ever to fake your way through a summertime cookout. You’ve heard about the test tube burger; you had to, it cost $33,000. Meanwhile, sales of alternative meat products, like faux hot dogs, continue to rise (to more than $550 million last year). The one cookout staple that doesn’t easily lend itself to veganism is ribs. So, before someone comes up with a test tube version, let’s shout out epic pork and beef ribs around the country.
Texas star chef Tim Love, whose restaurants include the Lonesome Dove Western Bistro and Love Shack, happens to be a ribs expert. He kindly provided a list of his favorite ribs spots - both pork and beef. Believe it or not, he’s got his eyes wide open enough to find a go-to place in Toronto.

Love will be tailgating on ESPN’s College GameDay Saturday, but he's dropped by to offer a little pregame party strategy just in time for tomorrow's kickoff.
Hut, hut, bite!
