    I've never heard the term associated with spare ribs. Maybe someone else can help.

    They may be what they call Danish cut, around a # per rack.

    My guess is that they scraped most of the meat off for sausage and youre buyin mostly bones... or maybe not...

    I called Restaurant Depot and asked them (Duhh!!).

    Spare light ribs are 3+ Lb per rack, medium ribs are 4.8 Lb and up. At the store I called they are fresh not frozen and they only had the mediums. I also asked does one have more meat than the other and he said not necessarily, it depends on the bone size, choose well.
