    I didn't get a stick. Oh well.

    With seeing Gary's and Bears posts I had to try it.

    Spares cut in half.



    In a bag with tq and brown sugar.



    Cured for 48ish hours. Rinsed and seasoned with SPG.



    Got some mac n cheese ready while the 007 got ready.



    Missed the first pic. This is where flipped them.



    Then kinda foiled them.




    Not much pull back so no stick. Tasted great thou.

    Thread hijack: I made bacon on a stick as a prep cook at a TGI Friday's. They had a Ceasar salad topped with bacon spirals. I would pull out a big box of bacon and a bunch of the bamboo skewers. I'd pierce one end of a slice of bacon, and wrap it as a spiral around the skewer, then pierce the other end and set it on a baking sheet. 350F. I'd pull the sheets out to cool and everyone, EVERYONE in the kitchen would steal them, including the manager. I actually had to stand guard over them.

    Sometimes, because of such "internal loss" I would have to bake another batch and that was fine with everyone.

    These are Awesome Too, but in this case the "Stick" is the Rib Bone within.

    Adam, My family really like my Ribs and I think they got their mouth set for that flavor. The Cured Hammy flavor kind of stomped on their preconceived notion of what was for dinner...JJ
