    Ever seen this before? Double rib bones in baby backs.

    I haven't made ribs in a while so maybe I just don't remember somehow, but isn't this wrong? On the top right and bottom left you can see that there is an offset row of bones. They seem very short, maybe an inch or so.

          I was thinking it might be pieces of the "hook" part of the bone where it meets the spine if they band sawed it just a little bit "down rib" from where they normally do.

        I wasn't sure, but i'm gonna let them have them back, doesn't look like a lot of meat in there. Land carp i suppose

        You don't want baby backs with too much meat on them because the extra meat will be lean (read "dry") white loin meat. Not so appetizing on low and slow ribs.

          Extra bones on pork ribs, extra legs on chickens. Germ cell malfunction.

            I find it occasionally on the thicker side of the slab, but usually only 2-3 doubles. Drives me crazy when I'm cutting them.

              Do you know what they are from? I'm not 100% on hog anatomy but I don't know why those would be there. Are they maybe from the neck or something?

              I have no idea why they are there. I just did a quick google and could not find anything.

            I hear ya MrWhite. I think every rack in my last 135lbs buy of Indiana Kitchen had them. I was trimming them out at one point but gave up

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
