Curly's Ribs

Anybody ever use Curly's Ribs... I got a case of em to try.. St Louis style... Frozen... at 2.17/lb... looks like the membrane is already pulled off too.

Is that a purdy good deal..? worked out to be 5 bucks a rack.. far sight better than 10 bucks a rack for Baby backs.

... Also.. anyone ever used Hormel Ribs?.. they any good... I can get the same st louis cut at like 1.49/lb but I am afraid they are enhanced

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

Ditto here in Va too! They were on sale one time for $4 a rack and my wife brought them home. I cooked them and they weren't awful but to best describe them they tasted like "Ham on a stick".

GH,"enhanced" means they're brined/injected/pumped with a "salt/broth" solution to keep them moist for the average consumer who will typically overcook their meat. There's nothing wrong with cooking these "if" you like the finished flavor and texture of the "enhanced" meat. I have tried them and do not like them. Please don't take this as an insult etc., I just don't like them.

Curly's ribs are awesome. I have used them when I cooked at my brothers golf club. I would love to find them at that price, I would have to order 10 cases to get Curly's ribs here.

The enhanced stuff contains nitrates wich give it the hammy flavor...

Kroger customers in Ar. must request enhanced because everything they sell seems to be.

Guess I am not too keen on reading labels before I buy stuff Does it say "enhanced" somewhere or is that just understood?

Way too much stuff is being enhanced these days.
They can also say, "always juicy", "self basting", etc. Anything in that vein.

The original label from the processor will tell you, but you have to look.

One "catch phrase" that you usually will be happy to see is, "minimally processed". That usually means that they cut em and wrapped em... done.
