Ribs for Your Summer Barbecue

FEATURED MEAT: Ribs for Your

Summer Barbecue

It’s time for ribs on the grill, and Roche Bros. is ready with all the fresh, grill-ready and fully cooked ribs to make your BBQ tangy, spicy and satisfying.

Here’s our primer on some of the popular types of ribs available:

Spareribs: Cut from the underbelly of the animal, spareribs are the fattiest of pork and beef ribs. Compared to other ribs, they have the least amount of meat, yet they’re the most flavorful due to the fat content. You can also get them without the bones. Make them Asian-style with a marinade from our grocery department!

St. Louis Spareribs: These popular spareribs are trimmed further, and the breastbone, cartilage and tips are removed. This process creates a rectangular rack of ribs. These ribs get the name “St. Louis” from a type of barbecue that originated in St. Louis, Missouri, characterized by a significant amount of sweet, slightly acidic, tomato-based barbecue sauce.

In Our Kitchen, get fully cooked St. Louis BBQ Ribs, ready to heat and serve for a quick and easy BBQ fix.

Babyback Ribs: These meaty ribs are known for being short, easy to grasp and ready for you to sink your teeth into! They are made of loin meat, which is less fatty. Smoke them, grill them or bake them. Try them in our recipe for Root Beer Ribs.

Countrystyle Spareribs: Compared to other types of ribs, Countrystyle ribs have the most meat and the least fat.  They can be easily confused with pork chops because they are cut in slabs and you need to eat them with a knife and fork. Make them dry with a mix of herbs and spices or slather on your favorite barbecue sauce.
