    I have some time to kill while the spare ribs are smoking . I cut them into St. Louis Ribs. Just wondering which ribs are the best to smoke. Pork , Beef (which i have never done yet.) spare ribs ? baby back ribs ??? .

    "to many choices Sally"  love some feed back on this..

    I have some N.Y. strip steak that i have been smoking for last 30 min. need to go get some grill marks on them to eat with some corn on the cob. will check back after lunch see what u all think on the ribs

    I love beef ribs but the ones my way are all bone no meat so I smoke Baby Backs the next best thing. Although Lamb is pretty darn good also.

    My favorites are any ribs you smoke and I eat.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Were kind of stuck on baby back's around here.
  8. I like Baby Backs - seems a bit more pleasing to my guests as well.

    I like beef ribs but spares are my favorite.  My wife used to only eat baby backs now she only wants spares.  St. Louis cut and memphis wet.

    My favorite ribs are any kind that I have in my freezer or fridge. I'm a fan of them all. I still have not made any Dino bones. I am slacking.

       Jrod, Spares are the easiest(I do mine whole) ,but if you are a Beefeater,Dinos are great[​IMG].

       The Spares have more on them than Babys,and don't dry out as much.I'm a big boy and a skinny little old St.Louis or BBs just aren't enough,and besides I'm a little Boheimian in my eating;I like to get that good stuff between the cartilage at the top(they are cheaper too).

       All I do is rub them,put in a 220*f smoker for 6 hrs.(with NO PEEKING,and No Foiling).They come out with just enough tug to stay on the bone,yet tender and tasty[​IMG].I don't even use sauce with or on them.The smoke flavor is all that is needed. 

       Have fun through the Summer and...
