Best U.S Baby Back Ribs 500/G
Why are they called U.S. baby back ribs?
The upper ribs are called baby back ribs, but not because they come from a baby pig! They’re only called baby because they are shorter in relation to the bigger spareribs. Each baby back rib rack averages 10 to 13 curved ribs that are 3 to 6 inches long and weigh about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds, which feeds about 2 people.
During the three hours also like to keep adding moisture to the pork with a spritz. A spritz is simply a spray bottle with liquid. In our case, it’s equal parts apple cider vinegar and water (you can also add equal parts apple cider vinegar and apple juice for a little more sweetness)
They are great for smoking, braising, grilling, or can be cooked in the oven. The ribs also take well to spice rubs and sauces.
