Removing Membrane From Ribs
What is the most easy method of removing membrane from back of ribs?
The membrane is the translucent layer on the back (bone) side of the ribs. As with all membranes, it's there to form a protective sheet and when it comes to smoking this will have the effect of reducing the flavor effect of a rub and frankly it's not nice to eat either.
There isn't an easy way to remove the membrane, I use a screwdriver and scrape the membrane until there's enough to create a tear strip. Then using a paper towel to grip the membrane, rip it as best you can.
Every membrane is different, some will come off easily, others will tear and then you have to start again.
