I finally got a day off work to test a new rub I have been working on for an upcoming competition. I have been going back and forth on what cut of ribs to do this year. I usually do BB but decided to cook a few slabs of Spares for this practice run. I always do 2-2-1 or 3-2-1 at around 225* and have had great results, so much that I have taken 5th and 8th in the Rib category in my last two comps. I cut the spares St Louis style and pre heated the smoker this time to 235* (Electric). smoked for 3 hours then wrapped for 2. When I removed the ribs from the foil the slabs broke in half as well as a few of the smaller bones. This is the second time I have had this happen with spares. I am wondering it is due to not enough meat on the slabs. Anyone else have this issue?
