Quick ? on St. Louis Ribs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Target has 'em cheap.

So my question is: Do you cook 'em 3-2-1 or 2-2-1? They're actually trimmed spareribs, so I think it would be more like 3-2-1. But what's your experience?

I did some yesterday and did 3-2-1 and they turned out great.

Spares usually run anywhere from 1.99 - 2.99/lb, maybe less, maybe a little more,depending where one lives in the ole USA.

That's all St. Louis style ribs are. I'll eat them, but don't understand the reasoning for trimming them. It's all good meat. wink.gif

The trim is to make them pretty and uniform. Which if you do it yourself you save about a dollar a lb

THE 3-2-1 is a general guideline. What dictates the numbers is how you like the end product. I recently tried 2-2-1 and they were great, not fall off the bone but still soft to the bite. The middle number can really make a difference seeing as how that is the zone for foiling. The longer the foil, the ribs will be more moist. It's all good, just different tastes.
