Thanks for any help,Nudib

    Will leaving the membrane on increase storage time?

    Won't effect the storage time, but by removing the membrane from the bone-side of the ribs will allow better smoke penetration.

    Most commercial rib places leave the membrane on 'cuz it isn't cost effective to remove as it is a bit time consuming especially when you have lots of ribs to prep.

    What Dutch said. In the restaurant we always removed them though.
