I cut and pasted this.....
Back ribs are popular for barbecue, but I am not a big fan. I suspect their popularity is because they are cut from some expensive steaks and back ribs are popular pork cuts.
Back ribs are good for braising
because the marrow is a stupendous source of flavor for stews, and they are popular for barbecue, but they are not my favorite cut for barbecue because they have so little meat and they must be cooked to well done to be made tender.
