rib advice!?

ben f | Apr 23, 2002 12:30 PM

okay, I know I said I wasn't cooking, but this is a one time thing.

I am craving ribs right now, but have only had them once (I'm from maryland, pit beef always sounded better) so don't know much about them.

what are the different types of ribs and how many (ribs or pounds) is a typical serving per person?

In my grocery store I've seen:

spare ribs
baby back ribs
country ribs
lamb ribs

and I have no idea which type to try. I also have no idea about cooking times (unfortunately these will have to be oven or frying pan based, and let me say ahead of time I know that they would be better on the grill but it's not an option), temperatures, or rubs/sauce applications. so I'm really looking for a basic rib primer.

any help?
