1st Attempt at St. Lous Style Ribs

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

      Hello again everyone!  I got home from work and to my surprise the Mrs. had picked up a couple racks of St. Louis Spareribs.  I had never smoked these before but I still had a game plan in mind.  Recently I have stopped using the 2-2-1 method for BB's and just keep them on the whole time.  I love the bark that I get off of them and they are still incredibly tender.  With that said, I used the same method for these ribs. . . . . .

    

 

 

 

 

 

Getting that membrane off! :duel:

 

 

 

I had some chili heads over to help with the food consumption, so I went with a spicy rub.  Brown sugar based with some Ghost Chili in there

 

 

 


This is after appx 16 hours napping in the fridge. . . .

 

I fired up the Kamado and as always it was right to temp and holding within 15 minutes.  I used a combination of Pecan and Apple for smoke.  Once the ribs were on, I didn't open the lid for 5 hours.  Sauced them up and it seemed like immediately they were destroyed!  Not one rib left.  I'll leave you with a picture medley of the final product.  Thanks for stopping by!!!  :beercheer:

They're not suppose to be any leftovers , B-one .:ROTF

 

Smokefever , I am so proud of you, trusting the no wrap method. Those looked Marvelous and they disappeared because they were good to the Bone (excuse the Pun).

 

I don't Sauce or glaze before cooking as I like mine Dry , but they turn out great also :

 

 

 

Have a great Holiday Season and as always . . .

 Those look absolutely fantastic. I like whole slabs of spares with no trimming at all. More meat that way, maybe some leftovers.

Thank you Kindly Oldschool, coming from you that is a huge compliment   :)  I don't sauce mine either before they hit the smoke.  I just dry rub them and let them sit in the fridge for a day. . . . and when you open them back up, the rub has turned into a glaze.  I definitely used to be a foiler, but just decided to try something different a couple months ago and everything about the "Q" is better imho.  Bark is better, mouth-feel is better. . . .its just an overall better product.

Thanks Chuck, I have to agree with you.  For the last couple of years the only ribs I would smoke are BB's.  I still love them, but I think I like the St. Louis a little bit more probably just for the simple fact that there is a lot more meat!

Great looking ribs Smokefever. A nice lot of meat still on the bone which makes a great deal of difference.
