Hugh Jackman was in St. Louis Monday for WWE Raw (because he's Wolverine?) and stopped for a quintessential St. Louis meal: barbecue. The X-Men star got ribs at Pappy's Smokehouse (3106 Olive Street; 314-535-4340). Good choice.

Jackman got the Big Ben, which is a full slab of ribs, a beef brisket and pork sandwich, a quarter of a chicken and four sides. Four! The guy sure can eat. He also signed the menu for chef Mike Emerson, writing, "And I thought Aussies could bbq!" His Instagram photo even got some press across the pond in the Daily Mail, not to mention over 30,000 likes.
