Grillmaster Raichlen (The Barbecue Bible ; etc.) believes "[t]he rib is surely the most perfect morsel of meat known to man. Most of the world's great food cultures back me on this." To wit, he points to the gastronomy of Argentina, Brazil, Italy, China, Korea and, of course, America. Yet many of the people who attend Raichlen's Barbecue University tell him the thought of cooking ribs intimidates them. While the task isn't complicated, Raichlen admits, a solid grasp of technique, tradition, lore and science can help anyone prepare "the perfect bones." In his casual, friendly manner, Raichlen takes readers through the ins and outs of ribs, with anatomy lessons explaining the difference between various cuts of ribs (like baby backs and rib tips) and instructions on trimming and peeling; seasoning or marinating; and mopping and saucing. He covers direct grilling, smoke-roasting, smoking and spit-roasting (and their variations), with advice on which kinds of ribs are best suited to each method. After an overview of tools and accessories, it's on to the 75 recipes in all their carnivorous glory. From First-Timer's Ribs ("the foolproof recipe that gives you competition-quality bones every time") to Grandpa's Barbecued Pastramied Short Ribs, Raichlen's got ribs—as well as all the necessary sides and sauces—covered.
