    Was at superstore and they had pork side ribs (cyvorac, not frozen) from maple leaf for $1.99/lb. ~$10 for 2 racks.

    Went after work yesterday but they were all sold out. Butcher told me to go to Customer Service and get a rain check. Went to CS and they were saying no rain checks on the ribs sale. They had flyers with no rain checks on all the tills displayed. CS gave me a rain check anyway lol. Anyone got pics of these ribs? Or am I better off price-matching at Superstore

    Yea, I think they proactively price matched, mine were $4.37/kg but were in regular food wraps. Quality-wise, I never find Superstore that bad for pork and chicken. Beef typically do have less marbling than coop/safeway.

    OK, help me out a bit here guys. I have seen some of the end results here, and I want to try it.

    What ribs should I buy, and what is the best way to cook them without a smoker? I have done them on a smoker before, but that's it.

    What ribs are you all buying to cook in your kitchen, and how?
    I've always done them either in the Instant Pot or oven. Depends on how many you are doing, oven if you're doing a few packs at a time.

    1. Dry rub, leave overnight
    2. Oven - Bake with tinfoil cover at 250F for 3 hours / Instant pot - Add a cup of water+apple cider vinegar. Cook for 20min, then natural release
    3. Finish with BBQ sauce and broil at 400F in oven to brown

    Long before I had a smoker I used to do them on my propane BBQ with offset heat on the one side and using wood chips wrapped in foil pouches for smoke, and while definitely not the most efficient way of smoking meat, I was able to keep temps at 225* and got great smoke flavour. Just requires a bit of attention so you catch the chip pouch when it inevitably gets to a point it catches fire towards the end of it's smoke burn so you don't get massive heat spikes.

    Ended up grabbing 2 packs of this this morning since I was there. Stopped by SaveOn after and they had no ribs. Oh wells. Typically back ribs are better than side ribs correct? More meat and less fat on the back and back usually cost more.

    The side ribs at Superstore are better than the back ribs at SoF imo. I got the ones in the trays instead of the Maple Leaf cryovac ones as they looked better.

    Trimmed some of the fat off the one rack. Chopped in pieces. Threw into Instapot. Threw in some VH Honey Garlic and VH Strong Garlic sauces. Tossed in a bunch of garlic cloves. Chopped 2 onions into quarters. Juiced 2 oranges. A bunch of S & P. 22 mins pressure cook high. Fall off the bone honey garlic ribs. Going to reduce the cooking time next batch, the white cartiledge crunchy bits were a little too soft.

    Any good deals on smoked salmon?

    Was at Loblaws City Market and they were clearing out 50g packs of smoked salmon for .94 cents so I took the last 13 packs

    That font/style is Save On Foods, I'm pretty sure.
    Edit - it is. You can make out the green logo on the meat UPC sticker.

    That's Save on but still 50% more than Costco (Costco is $3.3/kg). Also AAA

    Difference between fresh pork side ribs vs. Frozen back ribs.

    But you cannot get the side ribs anymore as the sale is over and they were sold out constantly since earlier in the week.

    I braised the SoF back ribs or used them in curry and enjoyed them that way. Still cheap for under $2/lb but know what you are getting and cook them accordingly.

    Left side is Coop back ribs, right is save-on $1.99 whatevers. Coop ribs seem really inconsistent, they sell a few different kinds on different days. I'm sure save-on sometimes has "good" ribs too, those $1.99 ones were oddballs.

    I fyou are regularly in costco, I think the ribs there are both good consistent quality, and a good consistent price. I just happen to hardly ever go to costco, so I get my ribs all over the place when I'm shopping for other things.

    4.50/lb vs. 1.98/lb.

    I think in terms of $/lb for the meat, you are not winning with those $1.99 ones, since there's so little meat.

    Agreed.
    Those 1.98/lb side ribs were legit though.
