Baby backs or spares?

    Ok, here we go. I really love my spare ribs! I prefer them to baby backs. In my opinion the extra fat and meat make them more delicious and if you do them right they can be just as tender! I like to do a dry rub then smoke them with grape. I like to wash them down with a good German wheat beer like Franziskaner. What is your preference, how do you cook them and what do you like as an companion beverage?

    I have not done spares yet, but the baby backs I did were great. :grilling_smilie:

    Low and slow is the key with spares. You definitely have to remember to take the membrane off! I cut mine St Louis style and use the trimming to make stock which I add to my beans!😉
