The racks of ribs are trimmed to remove the ends and extra fat to get more uniform center-slabs. These trimmed rib slabs might be labeled as St. Louis-style ribs in your supermarket.
Pork spareribs are flavorful, meaty slabs of ribs that range in size from 2 to 4 lb. per slab. Pork back ribs, also known as baby back ribs, are ribs from the pork loin section. A slab of back ribs ranges from 1-1/4 to 2-1/4 lb., and tends to be leaner and less meaty than a slab of spareribs. Similar to pork spareribs, beef back ribs are much larger than pork back ribs, yet still tender and full of flavor.
