Defense Secretary Bob Gates reveals that he's a strict traditionalist when it comes to barbecue. "I'm pork ribs, period," he tells radio's Laura Ingraham.
Gates also says that he hasn't found any barbecue he likes in Washington, certainly nothing like that served in his old haunt, Rudy's, near Texas A&M University, which he ran before replacing Donald Rumsfeld. And don't give him sauce choices. At Rudy's he goes "with the regular sauce, not the 'Sissy Sauce.'"
