So yeah, first time I'm trying this. Not happening I suppose its similar to the first time I filleted a fish. There is probably a technique one needs to develop over time. Please check the pick. These are St Louis style ribs from Costco. Do they have the membrane on them? I could find a very thin layer that I tried to remove but was unsuccessful. How bad is it if I cant get the membrane off? PS. Ribs were previously cut for storage before I decided to smoke them. The next ones will be whole which will probably be easier to de-membrane. Thanks!
