St. Louis Ribs
« on: May 25, 2017, 11:57:55 AM »
St. Louis is probably my favorite rib cut. I'm not a huge fan of back ribs.
Perhaps you and Larry will join us for the consumption of mass quantities this weekend. We will ignite our new flame pit and char some mammal flesh for you.

St. Louis style sure makes for more even cooked ribs over untrimmed spares.  I am with you on the babybacks.  They seem to be just sauce boats.   I have more luck with loin backs but still prefer spares or the st Louis trimmed spares.

Nice looking ribs.

I agree that St. Louis spares are the best, but every once in a while if I see some nice loin backribs, I will cure them before smoking. Kind of ham/bacon on a stick for something different, but really good.

Made some excellent St. Louis style spares the other evening.   I may have to do more testing to see if they're my favorite!
