National Barbecued Spareribs Day - FAQ

1. Mention the difference between baby back ribs and spareribs?

While spare ribs come from the belly section, baby back ribs are taken from around the loin, the muscle on either side of the spine running around the pig's back. They are curvier and shorter than spareribs, with lots of lean meat both between the bones and on top.

2. Why do they call them spare ribs?

The word originally derives from the German Rippenspeer, which translates literally into ‘spear ribs’ because this cut has historically been cooked on a spit or spear.

3. Is it better to boil ribs before cooking?

The choice depends on oneself but it is not recommended to boil for the best taste and moist spareribs. Long, low-heat cooking achieves the same goals of tenderizing and rendering the fat without the loss of flavor or moisture.

4. Are beef or pork ribs better?

Pork or beef are common choices for ribs. When properly cooked, both are flavourful and juicy but pork appears to be the leaner choice. Baby back or spare ribs are the most common cuttings on pork ribs. While spare ribs are meatier, fat and calories are higher too.
