Rib Membrane Question
 
When pulling it off. Do you go all the way to the bone, or split the 2 layers?

I've always split them, and have never had a problem. Just curious if anyone goes all the way to the bone.

I split them; if you go all the way to the bone, I think your ribs have a hard time holding together when cooked...

BobM 12-06-2012 02:29 PM

I only pull off the outer layer.

PatAttack 12-06-2012 02:57 PM

Outer layer, so they will stay together.

The_Kapn 12-06-2012 03:06 PM

Outer layer only.
I get burned thru "shiners" when I screw up and pull the inner one. :oops:

I Stopped pulling it off It all but disappears and my bones are juicer.

This, IMO.

I need to try this...I see a side by side comparison coming at my next big BBQ in January!

Outer only.

I didn't know there was an inner membrane layer???

Heisenberger 12-07-2012 06:14 PM

are we talking pork here? or does this apply to beef ribs as well?

I pull the membrane, I don't see two layers. When the membrane is off, the bones are bare. I have never had a problem with a rack falling apart, unless I grossly over-cook them.

Just the outer layer.
