Well, someone else just came out and said it, so I'll post and give that opinion a big 2 thumbs up. I don't hate Calhoun's, and I like some of their other stuff, but I have never gotten the "legendary ribs" bit.
I once posted something the slightest bit anti-Calhoun's on another forum one time, though, and you'd have thought something as benign as my opinion on food was the equivalent of personally insulting everyone's mama, wife AND Jesus.
My wife, who is a big time rib snob (wonder how she'd like that term ), does hate them, because she's offended that someone whose ribs are average at best in her opinion is enormously famous for them.

Your team. All the time.
You can be like a doctor and look at it... you can be like a lawyer and talk about it... or you can be like a farmer and plow right into it.

I worked at Calhoun's many years ago while in high school. You can experience a wide range of quality depending upon when you get them. They smoke them in batches and sometimes you'll get them really fresh out of the smoker and other times they'll take them out of the cooler and reheat them on the grill, slapping some sauce on them before sending them out to the table. I've had some calhoun's babybacks that were 9.5s and I've had some that were 7s. It's probably more common to get them in the 7-7.5 range, though.
