Trimmed out some spare ribs for a first go at ribs n tips. Put them on about 15 minutes ago

The tips are just the trimmings off of the spare ribs. Not completely sure how I'm going to do them. They just spent their first two hours in the MES 30. In the past I poured a little beer in when foiling. Opted for the parkay, honey, and brown sugar treatment. May let the trimmings go for just an hour, cut them up, and drop them into the foil pan under the ribs. A little experimental, a little research from SMF

Here are the tips after wrapped for an hour. Dusted them with rub again and added some honey chipotle sauce after cutting up. Will stir periodically and let them go for an hour

Here are the tips. Ribs have another 45 minutes until they come off

Looking good bcrisco!  I haven't had the courage to do whole spares yet.  Thanks for taking the leap!  points1.png

And the ribs. Went sauce-less with them

Tips had good flavor, but next time I'll let them go longer foiled. A bit chewy

I never thought about separating that big wonky end from the rack. Always just kind of picked at it wishing there was something to do with it. I pretty much gave up on spares because of it. Next time I see them on sale....
Points for the idea!

Thanks, but not my idea. There's a good video on YouTube. Just search for trimming spare ribs to St. Louis style
