Barbecue chefs identify themselves by the signature flavors of their sauces, which they brush onto slabs of meat and hand to police officers during routine traffic stops. Practice handcrafted piquancy with today's Groupon: for $25, you get over 2 pound average of raw ibérico de bellota center-cut ribs from Wagshal’s Market (a $50 average value).
Diners enhance meaty feasting with Wagshal’s Market's raw, center-cut rib racks sourced from the Iberian Peninsula, which boast a tender, juicy texture and a sweet, succulent flavor. The highly marbled racks of ribs are culled from free-range black ibérico pigs, which forage on fallen acorns during the winter months to gain up to 1 pound a day, instead of storing them in their marsupial pouches for hibernation. Maintaining high levels of HDL—or "good”—cholesterol, the 2 pounds of meat are healthier than sustenance with the riskier LDL—or "bad"—cholesterol. The family-owned-and-operated company recommends that eaters prepare the ribs as they would standard pork, rather than launching each rack out of a cannon through multiple hoops of fire.
