Sure ribs exist in Bangkok, but where can you feast on entire racks of pig smothered in smoky barbecue sauce that slide right off the bone like melting cheese?

We found the answer at the Great American Rib Company, a restaurant specializing in authentic American style hickory smoked barbecue.

Even included a self-serve taco stand!

So what’s the occasion for us calling a Thai food timeout? We’re smacking on ribs and covering animal parts in barbecue sauce while hanging out with some of Thailand’s most interesting bloggers and social web enthusiasts. This rib feast disguised as a ‘Blogger-B-Q’ was hosted by Kristie Kenney, Thailand’s new US Ambassador (follow @kristiekenney on twitter).

As usual we got carried into the evening by the choice of American beer and more food than we could handle. To find an account of the evening that actually includes pictures of people (not our top priority obviously), find the albums on the US Embassy’s Facebook page.
