Baby Back Ribs are pork ribs are a type of food dish popular in North America and Asian cuisine. Pork and bones from a pig’s ribcage are cooked by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served. Baby back ribs (otherwise known as loin ribs, back ribs, or Canadian back ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. The designation “baby” indicates the cuts are from market weight hogs, rather than sows. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs.
