Our Baby Back Ribs are perfect for your next barbeque! They naturally have less fat and more meat than conventional ribs due the Pasture Raised lifestyle of our pigs. The Baby Back Ribs are cut from the top of the loin/rib cage between the spine and spare ribs. Baby Back Ribs are also known as "Loin Ribs", "Back Ribs" or "Pork Loin Back Ribs". They are thicker and have less fat than Spare Ribs and have meat between and on top of the bones. Cook them up moist and tender with either a dry rub or your favorite sauce. Baby Back Ribs can also be interchanged with Spare Ribs in recipes but are smaller so will need a shorter cooking time.
COOKING TIP: Keep your temperature low and cook them nice and slow to keep your ribs from drying out. Use a meat thermometer to test for desired doneness.
Each package contains 1 slab of ribs, approximately 10-13 rib bones per slab.
The advertised price is an estimate based on exactly 3.00 lbs. The final price will vary based on the actual weight of your package.
All of our pigs here at John Henry's are fed a mix of corn, oats, and alfalfa to keep them happy and healthy. They are locally raised, treated humanely and never given any hormones or antibiotics. Our fields and feed are never exposed to harsh chemicals or pesticides.
