Last weekend, when we went grocery shopping, I was looking at the briskets, ribs, and such they keep in that part of the meat area. I always see these packages that are cryopacked in the end of the case, that are labeled "pork brisket strips". I decided to buy one just to see what they were. They were on for $1.12/lb. I bought a pack, and smoked them up yesterday. It is the pieces trimmed off of spares to make St. Louis style ribs. Three strips in the package. I rubbed them with Jeff's rib rub, and smoked them with Oak and Pecan. I also smoked some Eckrich skinless beef smoked sausage at the same time. I pulled the pork out after 5 hours, and it was done, and not overcooked. I thought it was pretty good. Didn't get any pics, as the wife ran down the batteries in the camera when she took Hunter to the park to play while I was tending the pit. For the price, I will do these again when I want to smoke something that is cheap and doesn't take a long time.
