Default Rib prep

While preparing some birthday bb's I noticed that there was an unusual amount of shrapnel.

As I was rinsing the ribs and running my hand over the meat I was picking off little pieces of bone. Where the bones were cut there were more than a couple of pieces of bone that would have hurt someone if they had been swallowed.

This is the very reason why I rinse everything. Some folks like to take the meat out of the cryo and throw it on the pit. In competition I don't guess you have much of a choice.

Be carefull out there.

I don't do comps, but, I always wash the meat, check it for trim and quality and remove loose bones, chips and stuff. It just makes sense to prepare the meat before I put the time in to cook it.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
