Ever notice that when a slab of our House Smoked Baby Back Ribs slathered with sauce lands on your table, nearby diners stop talking and stare with envy? You can hardly wait to dig into your eating adventure, and you know it’s going to get messy in the best and most delicious way.
Why Are They Called Baby Back Ribs?
“Baby” actually refers to the size of the ribs: baby back ribs are smaller than spareribs because they come from the top area of the ribs, above the spare ribs. Baby back ribs also are leaner, in higher demand and tend to be priced a little higher. Of course, there’s no need to worry about that at your local Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. We’re all about generous portions at a great value.
Each baby back rib averages about 3 to 6 inches long, and the full rack weighs about 1-1/2 to 3 pounds.
Smoked and Slow Cooked To Perfection
We serve 1.7 million House Smoked Baby Back Ribs a year. Here’s why — each rack of our ribs is hand-rubbed with Cheddar’s special seasoning blend and then smoked and slow-cooked for more than four hours. As our culinary team would tell you, the key to juicy, tender baby back ribs is keeping them cooking low, slow and with lots of TLC. Before they are served, we triple-glaze them with a tangy, house-made BBQ sauce made with a smoky-sweet blend of brown sugar and honey.
Our freshly made coleslaw and French fries make great accompaniments.
