What do you all do with the trimmings when turning spareribs into Kansas City Ribs

post #1 of 9

I'm getting ready to smoke some spareribs tomorrow and want to trim them to be Kansas City cuts. I hate the idea of throwing all that good meat away. What do you all do with them?
Thanks.

Same thing as the ribs.

Yes, treat them the same.  Or experiment and don't foil.  I usually skip the foil on them and end up with great bark that peels off the top and bottom. 

 

IF it survives past dinner time, they go great diced up in baked beans, collards, etc...

Snack on them while everybody else is waiting for food, lol.

Don't trim them off, enjoy them in the altogether.

Thanks guys

I did trim (but may not the next time).  They are all rubbed up and they will go on the smoker.  I like the idea of snacking on them all daydrool.gif

I'll post picks right here on all of it.

They make great snacks while waiting for the ribs to get done.

 

One of the guys cubed them up, covered in BBQ sauce & put them in a pan on the smoker, similar to burnt ends.

 

It looked like a good idea and think the next spares I smoke I will try that.

 

I wish I could remember who did it.
