    Well I asked the wife to get me some St. Louis style ribs to smoke this weekend.

    She came home with a package of ribs that are marked back ribs? Are these baby backs? This is my assumption but want to be sure before I get to smoking them.

    Most likely yes, are they thinner with smaller bones than what you would expect from spares?

    Not at home rite now so hard to say, they look like a lot of the baby back photos that you all have been posting.

    She also brought home some individually cut ribs that I would like to smoke right along with these, how should I handle those?

    Did a little searching on here and it looks like I can treat the country style the same as the baby backs. I will get into these tonight when I get home, gonna put some rub on tonight and wrap and get to smoking tomorrow at around 11a.m.

    I've never been to Soda Springs, I am up in the Panhandle just across the state line from Spokane WA

    Been to Stanley Id. a couple of time which I think is north of Soda Springs, that Stanley area is some beautiful country.

    The fish was caught on the Clearwater River near Orofino Id.

  9. Were yours baby backs?  I have the same  issue.  Bought some at Sam's... they say Pork Loin Back Ribs.  

    Don't know if they are considered baby.  They are not as wide as regular spare ribs, but they are considerably thicker.

    Yes they were baby backs and they came out great. The forum isn't allowing me to post pic's otherwise I would, will try again tomorrow.
    Rubbed them with a brown sugar based rub that I like, has a fair amount of cayanne and chili powder as well. Wrapped them and put them in the fridge over night for about 18 hrs. Put them in the smoker and smoked for 2.5 hrs. wrapped in foil with unsalted butter some honey, apple juice and some more rub spice back in the smoker for 2 hrs. than an 1hr unwrapped with some glaze of honey, caramel black velvet, a little apple cider vinagar and some more rub.
