best baby back ribs? no, seriously.
i'm running out of places to try spare ribs, so i thought i'd broaden my horizons.
in your opinion, what are the top 5 restaurants that serve baby back ribs?
this is what i'm looking for:
they must be smoked (not too much, not too little)
they must have a smoke ring
they must have a bark, and it cannot be burnt
they must be succulent and tender (not too difficult, considering)
they should be meaty and fairly well trimmed of fat
they should have a flavorful bark that is moderately spicy and not very sweet
they should not be finished on a grill
They are really good at the Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks.
but I cannot guarantee the ribs will qualify on all counts - that list seems too daunting for most people.
But they are definitely smoked on premises, aren't burnt, are succulent and tender, are meaty and well-trimmed. Saucing is on the side with several variations.
If you want to be pleasantly surprised, go to THE OUTDOOR GRILL, which is where Washington Blvd, and Washintgon ??? meet in the Venice/Culver City area.
It's at a car wash, and everyone I've ever sent there, doesn't stop thanking me.
Zero ambiance, and the food is a TEN!!!!!!!!
