    Can someone explain (and show) the difference between the different cuts of ribs? Spare Ribs, Short Ribs, Loin Back, ect. Pictures would be great if you have them.

    The KC cut is just a squared up version of the St. Louis cut..............St. Louis cut keeps tapering down as you move down the rack as the bones get shorter. The KC cut is more cut like a rectangle, usually cutting the smaller end.

    St. Louis - longer and tapering down

    KC - rectangle lookiing.

    Hope that helps.
