BBQ Ribs are a Hardmode food item dropped from various different Hardmode enemies within the Dungeon. They will give the player the Exquisitely Stuffed buff. This lasts for 24 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version) or by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version).

They drop from Skeleton Commandos, Skeleton Snipers, and Tactical Skeletons with a 4.76% chance, or from Paladins with a 14.29% chance.


  • Due to the relatively high drop chance compared to other food items that provide the Exquisitely Stuffed buff, it may be a viable farming option for late game players.


  • This item may be a reference to Meat in the Castlevania series, as both are powerful meat-themed healing items dropped by monstrous enemies within a castle-like structure.
  • This item being dropped from skeletons likely alludes to their ribs being visibly exposed.
