About back ribs
If you're looking for satisfying, succulent meat, you can't go wrong with pork back ribs. This versatile and oh-so-tasty cut of meat works well when cooked on the grill or in a smoker. Back ribs are even great when prepared in a crockpot. You may find back ribs with other similar names, including:
- Baby back ribs.
- Loin ribs.
- Pork loin back ribs.
Pork back ribs are the ribs you'll get from high on the back of a pig. This is where the ribs meet the animal's backbone. Back ribs are the same ribs you'd find in bone-in pork rib loin chops. However, in the case of back ribs, the loin is removed to make a boneless pork loin, leaving behind just your rack of ribs.
A rack of pork back ribs typically gets you between eight and 13 ribs. Those ribs are usually cut to widths between 3 and 6 inches. Because they wrap around the loin, you'll find that back ribs are slightly curved.
Pork ribs are the most popular rib variety, though many people also enjoy beef ribs. Both types of ribs contain a large amount of connective tissue, which means that you'll need to cook either beef ribs or pork ribs long and slow. You can achieve this by using dry heat cooking methods such as smoking or grilling or with moist heat methods like braising.
Whether you go with a dry or moist heat method, using low temperatures and long cooking times will enhance your cooking success. Various regional differences exist regarding seasoning, preparation, and using dry rubs or wet sauces, so you're sure to find a recipe that suits your taste.
