I love baby back. When I was working I ordered every other two weeks a full slab of the Chicago Baby Back ribs. Ribs is the restaurant’s specialty.
I am very picky when it comes to ribs, I prefer the smaller portion of the ribs which is the baby back. This cut of ribs is less fatty and tender.
Well anyway, it happened to me twice that the restaurant have switched the meat to a St. Louis.
During work week, I usually order to go. The first time it happened to me I called the restaurant and let them know that I got the St. Louis meat.
Mistakes can happen but they told me they run out of baby back. The second time around I just went there and returned it.
They offered a discount but I refused. It would be nice to tell the customer first instead of just switching to a different cut.
I don’t know If they assumed people won’t care or will not notice. They were wrong.
I paid more for that portion of meat and I expected to get what I paid for.
So even though I was tired, I took it back to the restaurant and that was the last time I ordered from them.
Now that I am not working I have all the time to barbecue. When I do, I have a lot going.
With this batch, I grilled Korean BBQ, the Filipino BBQ not on skewer and tons of eggplant.
Maple Baby Back Ribs BBQ Sauce is one of my favorite sauce when grilling or barbecuing. Just be sure not to burn it.
Remove the transparent film at the back of ribs so seasoning and sauce can penetrate the meat.
Make sure you have a safe zone on your grill when flames start to wrap around the meat.
Wrap the ribs with foil and grill for about 40 to 60 minutes. Foiling keeps the meat moist, juicy and tender.
Place the ribs over medium heat on your grill with a temperature of 325 degrees F.
Once the meat is tender, take it out of the foil and baste frequently for about 20 minutes.
When flame starts to flare up, move the meat to the safe zone. It can easily burn with the sauce.
