Triming spares

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I noticed that most of you prepare your spareribs by triming off certain parts. I think this is called "St. Louis" and "Kansas City" style. I've never done this before, before I bought a smoker I would just cook the whole slab in the oven. Actually I've always done baby backs, but reading here I want to start doing spares.

There is a sticky for triming a brisket in the beef section, but I couldn't find anything for triming spares... I have a fairly large rack of spares in the freezer and I'm planning on smoking this coming weekend. I'd like to cut off the tips and whatever else I need to but I'm not quite sure on how this is done.

Can someone help me out by providing instructions, pics, link or whatever. I like the way these ribs are trimmed: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=17229

Try this. This might be the one you are looking for. If not, try doing a search, type in Trimming ribs.


Hope this helps.

Thats the same link (earache's) I provide for trimming StL. Be sure to save the trimmings - makes a great snack while you're waiting for the ribs, or go great diced up in beans

Just did a quick search and seen someone mention a video that Ritchie posted that shows how to prepare spares st. louis style. Does anyone have a link for this vid?


dang, thanks for the quick replies... I should've refreshed before I made a second post.
