    What does everyone like better? I like the untrimmed spare, they are so meaty. But the St. Louis is neater.

    I prefer back ribs, but if I'm doing spares I do them St. Louis cut - it gives me the benefit of having rib parts for beans.

    I enjoy trimming them and using the trimmings for snacks, and/or ingredients in some wicked beans.

    Yea I cut the underside of the ribs (that flap of skirt meat off than cut it into chunks, brown and put into the beans) than smoke em whole. I am doing that again for the fourth. Next time I'll try them St. Louis style. I'm trying cherry wood chips for my ribs tomorrow first time Iv'e used cherry.
