Buy the spares, trim mercilessly and save for sausage. End up with "BB's" plus the bonus of sausage fixins' and less money.

yes i do agree more meat& ya prolly not trimming enough and cook-this last batch kinda turned my off on ribs-to rich for us.maybe I think of the babies I did before that turned out great.

I vote for BB. Course just ate some and they were great so I might be biased. Course I'm not going to turn down spares if they are offered.PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

I like the St. Louis Style spares over BB, myself. More meat and they are cheaper.

I prefer the spares for the same reasons the others have said.

Since I've been using the 3-2-1 method for them a lot of the fat seems to cook out of them leaving them almost as lean as the baby backs.

I prefer bb's too. But they are $3.99lb here and spares are $1.99lb. More meat on spares. And like Rich said, trim them down to bb's and put the trimmings in Dutchs beans or chili.

Did you run into those "enhanced" ribs??? Those things are nasty, no proper way to cook those!! PDT_Armataz_01_27.gif
