The BBQ Ribs are a Hardmode food item dropped from Skeleton Commandos, Skeleton Snipers, and Tactical Skeletons with a 1/21 (4.76%) chance or from Paladins with a 1/7 (14.29%) chance. When consumed, they grant the Exquisitely Stuffed buff. This lasts for 24 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (), by selecting the icon using Cycle Next/Previous Buff and then pressing Remove Buff (), or by double-tapping the buff icon ().
Like all other food items, the BBQ Ribs can be placed on a Plate.
- Due to the relatively high drop chance compared to other food items that provide the Exquisitely Stuffed buff, the BBQ Ribs may be a viable farming option for late-game players.
- This food item may be a reference to Meat in the action-adventure video game series Castlevania, as both are meat-themed items that provide beneficial effects. However, in the Castlevania games, Meat is a powerful healing item that is usually hidden within breakable blocks but can be obtained in a variety of different ways across the series, such as by hitting candles, purchasing it from vendors, or defeating specific enemies.
- The BBQ Ribs dropping from specific kinds of skeletons (Skeleton Commandos, Skeleton Snipers and Tactical Skeletons) likely alludes to their ribs being visibly exposed.
