Had a fun time will definitely do it again next year. There were 27 teams competing we finished towards the bottom half. The ribs were over cooked falling off the bone so that wasn't good. We cooked them unwrapped for roughly 2 hours between 230-250 spritzing every hour. Then wrapped them for 2.5 hours (too long) at the same temps great bone pull but over done. I just need to practice more used to cooking the whole spare not St. Lois style but I'll take this as a learning experience & improve for next year.

Gotcha. I usually but the full spares, since they are cheaper, then trim down to SL style. Also gives me a chance to try different flavor combos with the trimmings.

That's a good idea I'll have to try that

I made the mistake & took some on Snapchat & didn't save them to my camera roll. Here's the only one I have unfortunately.
