Beef ribs? Spare ribs? Baby back ribs?
I'm planning a basic rub and slow cook for a few hours
Any tips for a newbie .
First of all Beef Ribs are the King of Ribs, Spare ribs are the grand daddy of them all if you can find meaty beef ribs, the best bang for your buck is probably short ribs very delish and always very meaty.
Pork ribs are also good but unlike beef ribs you will have to add flavor to pork ribs, beef ribs are naturally full of flavor. If you choose pork ribs i would go with babybacks over spares. Good luck which ever rib you choose.
