Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Gidday from NZ,

Just purchased the legendary 'Big Green Egg' on the advice of my buddy from Dallas. He also extols the virtues of babyback ribs. Does anyone know if there is another name for this delicacy and where they can be purchased in Auckland NZ.

    Welcome to the neighborhood!! Hope you enjoy your new cooker.

    Yes, baby backs are also called loin ribs, back ribs or loin back ribs. These ribs are 'high on the hog' and are just below the spine.

    Spare ribs are from the belly.
    Happy Trails

    It's actually two separate charts. And to be honest, I can't answer that. Not because it's top secret or anything, but because I just don't recall. I cruise around on about 8 or 10 barbecue forums, plus get more e-mails than I can deal with some days.

    Do you recognize one of them?
    Happy Trails
