    Okay all - I've got a simple one for ya. What's the difference between spare ribs and st. louis ribs? Is it just the way they're trimmed? I know that this is the place to find the answer.

    Yes, it is the trim. Here is a link to a video showing how to do it!



    Hope this helps!

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Babybacks are the Loin Back ribs that come from farther up the pig. It's actually a different cut. Baby backs have more bone and less meat, and take a bit less time to smoke!

    Hope this helps!
