Ah, the second explanation. Could very well be. Either way, I like it.
Actually, it's really funny, because even though I like pork, and a pulled pork sandwich (with cole slaw) is high on my list of "world's best foods", my favorite all time barbecue item is beef ribs. Nice, slow-smoked, and slathered in sauce. There was only one place I've ever been to that offered this, and they ended up shutting down.
Now I have to learn to make them myself. Thing is, beef ribs are slowly disappearing from store shelves, too. This is really getting annoying.
I really don't know why I prefer them to pork ribs. Not that I don't love pork ribs. I just like the big beef ones more.
Okay, I'll stop blabbing now. :)
