Best Babyback Ribs
« on: May 21, 2004, 08:26:55 AM »
Anyone care to share their favorite babyback ribs recipe?

The meat must be fall-off-the-bone tender and have a nice smoky flavor!

Recipes, anyone?  ;D

No real secret to it, the spare rib is closer to the bacon.  Try St Louis or split spare ribs and compare the flavor to baby backs. 
The baby backs you get in the most restaurants(Not all) are not cooked in a pit but boiled, steamed, or par baked.  At the restaurant, they are given a coating of barbecue sauce then heated.

On the topic of babyback ribs, - you need to be careful - many places will indicate on their menus that the ribs that you are ordering are babyback, and in fact they are not, - for anyone but an expert ( like a butcher ) it's pretty darn hard to tell exactly if they are indeed baby back or a flank rib that looks VERY much like a babyback.  With all the preparation they do you just can't tell in the majority of cases.

Anyway I would assume the better known and larger BBQ places are selling true babyback ribs,
but with smaller places trying to save a few dollars, you never know.
