Chef’s Tip: Prior to applying a rub to ribs, the skin should be removed to allow the rub to penetrate the meat. To peel skin from ribs, turn the ribs bone-side-up. With a sharp paring knife, carefully lift up the edge of the skin from a corner of the slab. Work your fingers between the skin and rib meat to loosen the skin. To prevent slipping, use a paper towel to pull the skin across the slab.
