Continuing the series of videos produced for the Australasian Barbecue Alliance, I walk you through the raw materials of where pork ribs come from, and exactly how they cut St Louis, Spare and Baby Back ribs, then some of the finest cooks Down Under share their cooking tips. Plus, a little bonus explanation on why Aussie bacon, though delicious, is the culprit for why it can be so hard to find meaty ribs in Australia.
