Most ribs have two membranes. The 2nd one is VERY attached to the meat and I wouldn't try to pull it off. I don't know the technical term for it, but someone will tell us.

Key to beef ribs would be get the biggest, meatiest because they're hard to find. Make friends with your butcher (if he sells rib eye, ask him to trim some special ones up for you).

thanks for the advice. i wish i could pick the ribs but they are supplied for us by the competition.

I agree with the previous poster, if you pull the second membrane off the bones will actually fall off the meat. This is fine if you want to make McRibs but for comps leave that second one on..

Good Luck!
