    I bought a 3 pack of Baby Backs from Costco.  Is it possible that the membrane have already been removed?  this is my first time but it didnt seem like there was a membrane on any of them.  Do you see one?

    Yes I see it, take a sharp knife and cut down the middle of a bone and start peeling and you will see what the membrane looks like. The whole membrane from one rack balled up would be the size of a strawberry or smaller. Use a paper towel to grab it and pull it off , kinda slippery. Hope this helps.

    A while back someone posted a sure fire way to remove the membrane and I have used it with great success. - Run the ribs under warm water  then pull the membrane. It has worked every time for me with great success

    Yeah, I see it too. Haven't tried the hot water method yet, I will have to give it a try. Paper towel trick has always worked for me.
