With beef I tend to be more spartan with seasoning. Likewise with direct grilling. A really nice steak can get by nicely with just salt, although I'm partial to the complexity of "Montreal steak seasoning", which has among other things, dill seeds.
With smoked pork ribs though, removing the seasoning removes so much. Pork ribs are a bit of a blank palette on which to paint...hence I have done versions inspired by Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Greek, German, Jamaican, and other cuisines. without seasonings, be it marinades, dry rubs, or glazes, it would all just taste like salty pork. Which is fine, for what it is!
Funny about f--k getting censored. I imagine they only censored the acronym...let me try...FlugAbwehrKanone. Heh, that seemed to go through, but when I use the acronym.... f##k. Weird! I thought it was a pretty well accepted and non-controversial term for anti-aircraft artillery?
