Our spare ribs are full sized with generous amounts of meat and marbling for a flavorful and satisfying serving. These slabs of 100% purebred Berkshire (Kurobuta) pork ribs are all natural and raised without any added hormones.
Snake River Farms spare ribs are cut St. Louis style making them perfect for grilling, smoking or barbecuing. These are 100% Berkshire pork (Kurobuta) for a deeper red color, rich flavor and juiciness. Our spare ribs are the choice of grill masters who prefer larger, meatier ribs than our baby backs.
*Please note: Kurobuta (Berkshire) ribs are smaller in size than conventional pork, and we do not recommend them for competitions.
Our spare ribs are a natural product and the actual weight can vary up to +/- 0.5 pounds.
These ribs are sourced from the belly of the hog after the pork belly is removed. These are larger than baby backs and have a structure that is much more flat. The fat content is higher which adds flavor when cooked slowly.
Fast fact: Hogs can have up to 17 ribs which is 4 more than beef cattle.
