It takes time, patience and skill to truly master BBQ ribs. Making mistakes like slathering on the BBQ sauce too soon, not pre-cooking the ribs before grilling, and not removing the membrane from the back of the ribs can lead to disappointing results.
If you’ve given up on making BBQ ribs at home, or if you’re searching for “bbq ribs delivery near me”, here’s what you should know when ordering CowgirlQ ribs.
Spare Ribs, Baby Back Ribs and St. Louis-Style Ribs: Choose One — Or All Three.
Spare ribs come from the belly and are bigger, meatier and tougher than other types of ribs. We’re careful with how we select them and pass on ribs that have an uneven distribution of fat. Too much fat on one side will lead to one side having no meat on it once it’s cooked.
Baby back ricks are taken from the area near the loin, which is the muscle that runs along the pig’s back on either side of the spine. These ribs are curvier and shorter than spare ribs and have plenty of lean meat between and on top of the bones. Baby back ribs cook faster and are more tender.
St. Louis style ribs are rectangular and are easier to work with. They’ve got less meat than baby back ribs but have more fat. These types of ribs brown more evenly because they’re thinner and flatter.
Craving Beef? We’ve Got Plate Short Ribs, Chuck Short Ribs and Back Ribs.
Plate short ribs are also called beef short ribs and are the biggest and meatiest type of beef rib. Chuck short ribs have five ribs, usually three to four inches long, and come from the neck of the cow. Back ribs are the same as those in a prime rib roast. These ribs taste the best when grilled indirectly, but expect the meat to shrink considerably while it cooks.
Sustainably Sourced From Heritage Farms.
Our pork is sourced from farms committed to following humane practices. Heritage Farms hogs are free to roam on the farm, build nests for their piglets and enjoy the sunlight and fresh air every day. These practices ensure healthy pork and quality cuts of meat.
We Take Our Time — But It’s Worth The Wait!
Cooking ribs takes an average of 10 hours; this includes preparation, rubbing, smoking, packing and delivering. End your search for “bbq delivery near me” with CowgirlQ and give us a call!
