    Spares or Baby Backs?

    Just a quick question, which are meatier and juicier, spare ribs or baby backs?
    As always,
    Thanks!

      Spares are generally larger, but I prefer baby backs myself.

        Spares for sure here. Extra meat on baby backs is usually lean loin meat that tends to be dry. Spares have more fat (juicier) and I'm one that considers that a good thing!

          You can't go wrong with either one when they are cooked just right.

            My vote is for Baby Backs.

              Cooked properly, I say baby backs for meaty.

                Spares are have more fat and cook much more uniformly. I don't care for the loin meat on baby backs. Don't get me wrong I love both, but when I am in the store and cooking for myself, its spare ribs every time.

                I used to be a baby back guy but I'm slowly shifting to spares. The dry loin meat really ruins the baby backs. The babies without the loin meat are to die for though. Huge meaty bites.

                  Spare Ribs cut down St. Louis style is my preference.
