I prefer buying spare ribs and doing my own trimming, rather than buying the St. Louis ribs already trimmed. The local HEB (Texas grocery chain) always has both and you pay more for the St. Louis. I don't mind the extra effort of trimming them myself, and then I have those trimmings I either smoke with the ribs or vacuum seal for using with beans, etc.. The trimmings off of the spare when I square them up are good with eggs and biscuits on a Sunday morning, or use the smoked ones reheated with some fried potatoes and onions. Do you folks buy spares and trim your self?
