We had a party last Sunday and made what I have been told are the best ribs we have done to date. The problem is, Big Al and I each only got one. To resolve that we threw on 4 racks of St. Loius cut spares and 2 fatties - one maple and one sage. The Sage fattie is already history, and the maple is for our neighbors, along with a rack or two. Here is the start of the cook this morning... The fatties are straight out of the package - no stuffing, no rub (except what came off my hands from the ribs) , no bacon blanket. Royal Oak with cherry and apple for flavor.
