Where to get good baby back ribs in South Dublin

    I'm starting to get into slow cooking ribs in my Kamado, but looking for good ribs. I got them in the past from FXBuckley but they are not that meaty, any suggestions?

    To be honest, most baby backs you get in Ireland are not that meaty. It varies a bit from rack to rack but I've never found a particular butcher that consistently has meatier ribs.

    Do not be fooled by the ones you see the Americans cooking on youtube, over there the pigs are juiced to make them grow larger.

    One thing I started to do is instead of cutting the ribs in between each bone in the middle, I cut up against the bone, which means each individual rib has hardly any meat on one side but a good bit on the other side. It makes it feel a bit more substantial. Could just be me though.

    The Brown Pig in Terenure. Message them and tell them what you’re after.

    They do but if you message them to specify that you want really meaty ones they can make sure you get exactly what you want.
