Former professional football player Al ‘Bubba’ Baker brought his patented method for making deboned baby back ribs to ABC’s Shark Tank television show, where he caught the interest of investors who had never before seen a method patent for preparing meat. The patent for cutting and forming boneless pork loin to mimic a slab of pork rib meat was prosecuted by Kinney & Lange and issued in 2006 (U.S. Patent 7,022,007). Since the episode aired in December 2013, Baker has entered into a partnership with a major meat processor in Missouri. In April 2014, Baker returned to the show to be recognized as one of the best investment decisions made. Bubba’s ‘world famous’ boneless ribs can be found at www.bubbasbonelessribs.com.
