    Last weekend, when we went grocery shopping, I was looking at the briskets, ribs, and such they keep in that part of the meat area. I always see these packages that are cryopacked in the end of the case, that are labeled "pork brisket strips". I decided to buy one just to see what they were. They were on for $1.12/lb. I bought a pack, and smoked them up yesterday. It is the pieces trimmed off of spares to make St. Louis style ribs. Three strips in the package. I rubbed them with Jeff's rib rub, and smoked them with Oak and Pecan. I also smoked some Eckrich skinless beef smoked sausage at the same time. I pulled the pork out after 5 hours, and it was done, and not overcooked. I thought it was pretty good. Didn't get any pics, as the wife ran down the batteries in the camera when she took Hunter to the park to play while I was tending the pit. For the price, I will do these again when I want to smoke something that is cheap and doesn't take a long time.

    Here is a pic I got as I put them in the smoker. I took the thermo out right after this pic was taken.

    Chris, looks like rib tips to me also? Don't take to long but very tasty!! Oh, when they trim ribs St. Louis style they remove the brisket bone/sternum/rib tips...yum!

    First time I've seen those, I'd like to come across some though! Price is right.
    Bet they smoke up fine.
