Baby Back Ribs
Called Baby Back Ribs thanks to their smaller and more manageable size, the name does not denote the age of the animals. This popular cut tends to be more lean, but also more tender, than your other rib options.
Other Awesome Cuts
Baby Back Ribs come from the upper rib cage, where the ribs meet the spine. This section of ribs contains the same bones as bone-in pork chops, and has some of the most tender meat on the animal.
Ribs do best when given lots of time to cook at a low temperature; that’s why they’re so great for smoking. Give these ribs a rub down with your favorite sauce or dry-rub, set the heat to low, and hang tight.
