yo dickey,
i hope this helps.
Spare Ribs

Spare ribs are the intact rib section removed from the belly
and may include costal cartilage,
with or without the brisket bone removed and diaphragm trimmed.
They will contain at least 11 bones.


St. Louis Style Ribs

St. Louis Style ribs are cut from the spare rib
and are prepared by removing the brisket bone parallel
to the rib side, exposing cartilage on the brisket bone side.
Skirt meat can be removes. If left on,
the outside edge of the skirt should be trimmed.


Pork Brisket Bone (Rib Tip - Breaks - Tips)

are the small meaty pieces that are removed from the spare rib
during the process of making a St. Louis rib.
Cut from butcher hogs, they are very meaty.


Riblets

from the loin or spare ribs, generated by straightening the loin
or cutting down a loin or spare rib. Will vary in size and weight.


Flatbone - Button Bone Riblets

The last four to six bones of the back bone,
not having ribs connecting them. A cover of meat will connect each.

That's what I suspected.

You don't hardly see dissected spares around here. We take part of the brisket off if we're forced ( due to lack of availability) to cook big slabs, but only as much as is necessary.

We kinda think that the brisket bites are the best bites on the rib ( if they're still attached when cooked) and so we leave them on. It's kind of an Oklatex thing to not use St. Louis ribs. (I'm sure you can imagine)

Usually , w' 3 1/2 & down slabs, the cartlidge is soft and edible and doesn't get in the way.

Thanx for the info. The flat bone ribs they mention are something I've never heard of. Do you have any experience w/ them?

yo dickey,
yes i have --
in memphis there was a market that had them in 10 lb box-frozen
i did grill some --
i ended up using them like neck bones--mainly for seasoning--
in stead of ham hocks----they worked good---
they were about half the price of the ham hocks.
