    Did 6 slabs SL ribs myself this weekend.  Yours look great!  If ya want more smoke and foiled just wait longer to foil.  And by the way apple wood is my favorite although now that I am in the deep south it is not easy to get.

    I think that smoke ring looks great, and they look delicious.  

    I see some cartilage there, when I do what I think are St. Louis cuts, I take it to the bone on each rib.  I dunno if that's right or not.  I have seen some people who do it more to get a nice square shape, and actually, that is what I plan to do next, just to give it a shot.  I find the little ribs at the end get murdered in getting the fat ribs cooked.

    @kid creole yea this was my first attempt at doing st.louis style and the vid I had seen on youtube wasn't very instructional on the rest of the cutting but I've read the sticky on here so next time should be even better! Thanx again guys for all the comments and the tips :):sausage:

    I think on some racks of ribs you have to wing it and do what you did there.  At least that's what I plan to try next time if needed.  I have gotten some racks where the last ribs on the end were an inch and a half long, lol.  

    I really like this video.     At 40 seconds into it, he's feeling out the bones with his left hand.  It can whiz by if you're not sure of what your looking at.  It actually might not be a real good instruction video because of how good and fast he is.

    Man, my mouth is watering after looking at those ribs again.
