A BBQ Delicacy - Baby Back Ribs!
The Barn-B-Que Smokehouse makes every effort to serve the very best BBQ at the Lake of the Ozarks. This requires us to know how to cook up the classics in a way that at least stands up to (but preferably far exceeds) what you've tasted before.
A perfect example of this is our irresistible smoked baby back ribs. All great BBQ joints need to know how to cook up an amazing rib and our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant has definitely figured that one out! What do you already know about this mouthwatering cut of meat? Here are a few details for you about this BBQ staple followed by the many tasty ways we serve 'em up to you here at The Barn-B-Que.
The Infamous Baby Back Rib
This type of rib doesn't get its name because it comes from a young pig but rather because of the fact that it's a shorter cut in relation to spare ribs. Spare ribs come from the belly area whereas baby back ribs are cut from where the rib meets the spine after the loin is removed.
While they may be shorter, they make up for that by being more tender and leaner than spare ribs. Baby back ribs have lots of that lean meat both between and on top of the bones. Once we get a hold of them here at our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ smokehouse, they are perfectly rubbed, expertly smoked, and deliciously sauced to create some of the best baby back ribs you've ever tasted!
