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.
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.
Not just a piece of meat
Great flavor starts in the field. At Porter Road, we partner with farmers who raise their animals on pasture, for a difference you can taste.Learn more about our process
