Burger King will unveil its new summer menu Thursday, which will be highlighted by a new, limited time BK Rib sandwich - similar to McDonald's boneless McRib.

The new sandwich will go on sale May 21, but only for a limited time. Other new items will include a pulled pork sandwich, BBQ sandwiches and sweet-potato fries.

McDonald's popular McRib sandwich is also only available at certain times of the year.
