Question about cutting/trimming ribs?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I was wondering what is the best way to cut the ribs down before smoking them. When cutting them across the bone what would you use? Do you even have to cut them across the bone? I believe its St. Louis style that they are cut and trimmed up. Thanks for some insight. I'm planning on smoking some ribs this weekend and want to get everything lined out! Thanks again!

Since I don't do competitions I don't trim my ribs. I do pull the membrane off though.

Thanks dirtsailer. Yeah I will probably just put them on as is. I was just wondering if there is something I need to be on the look for like a special knife/saw or whatever is used for this. I look forward to smoking these ribs!

If you're cutting spares to make St Louis ribs you're mainly trimming meat. So no special tools needed. There are some good YouTube videos out there on trimming.
