Pork ribs include dainty baby backs and spare ribs, the latter flatter and longer with more bone in the bone-to-meat ratio. St. Louis ribs are spare ribs from which the tips have been cut, yielding a rectangular slab that is flat and easy to disassemble and eat rib by rib. Rib tips are the least expensive variation, offering none of the lush meat strips of the other kind, and demanding significant tooth work to get the meat. Aficionados believe the chewing is worth it for tips’ intense flavor.
