Ribs 101

By Anthony Serrano

Almost nothing compares to the taste of ribs fresh off a Bull Grill. Classic smoked ribs are a breeze to make on your Bull Gas Grill using the Easy Fill Smoke Box and some easy techniques. Ribs are really easy to make and don’t require as much work or preparation as you might think. In our latest installment of our Grilling Master, we’ll cover the ease of grilling with a good amount of smoky flavor that will have everyone in your neighborhood lining up to get some.

One of the questions I get asked a lot is which cut of meat is best for traditional-style BBQ Ribs. Should I use baby back ribs or spare ribs? Both are excellent choices of pork but a little different.

  • “Babyback” ribs or what are also referred to as pork back ribs come from high on the back of the hog where they meet the backbone. This particular cut is the bone you find in bone-in pork rib loin chops Normally this is my favorite cut to use when I want ribs. I find they have a little more flavor and they are definitely more tender.
  • Pork Spare Ribs are the lower section of ribs and are a little fattier since they are by the belly area. The meat is a little tougher than baby back ribs but with the right amount of grilling, you won’t notice the difference.

Chef Anthony Serrano Pro Tip – Remember to remove the silver skin from the under side of the ribs. This will help with seasoning and make it easier to eat. In the video below I show how simple it is to remove.

The easiest way to infuse your smoky flavor into your grilling is using the Bull EZ-Fill Smoke Box. It’s extremely easy to use and fill as the name implies. Once you become familiar with it you can use different flavor woods to enhance your grilling.
