FAQs about back ribs
Pork back ribs and baby back ribs are indeed the same thing! Back ribs are commonly known as baby back ribs due to their shorter size when compared to other types of ribs. If you're shopping for a baby back ribs recipe, you're getting the right product by purchasing back ribs.
While back ribs come from high on the back where the ribs meet the backbone, spare ribs are the lower rib section that extends around the belly and joins the sternum. Because spare ribs come from the belly area, you'll find that spare ribs tend to be a little fattier than back ribs.
The meat you'll get from spare ribs is also a little tougher than back ribs, as the muscles around these ribs are part of the breathing mechanism and used more. Spare ribs are flatter than back ribs and contain more cartilage than their counterparts. Spare ribs are usually cut to six to eight inches wide, and a whole rack features 11 to 13 ribs.
If you're looking for tender, succulent spare ribs, you can use similar methods to cooking back ribs. Spare ribs work well with slow, long braising or recipes using a grill, oven, or smoker.
