St. Louis Style in Ohio!!!

Discussion in 'Pork' started by majorlee69, Feb 1, 2008.

  1. Thank you all for teaching me the basics of smokin spares...With your help on the prep work I was able to cut them St. Louis style. My family and friends were very impressed and there wasn't a single piece of meat left. I had to adapt a little due to the weather and I think they could have been more tender but this was a very successfull smoke for me. I had some trouble keeping the temps steady on my home made wood/charcole smoker but I was afraid to use my electric ecb since it tends to stay around 250. ( A little high as I understand it ). So once I wrapped in foil I finnished in the oven at 225, then I ran them across the fire on a grill with sauce. Here ya go..................( One day I'll have great success and hope to find myself worthy of OTBS )

    Good job!

    Oh, and the 250 won't hurt them any, just adjust the cook times a bit.......250 is fine if you find you need to do them that way sometime.

    Great job!

    I have always smoked baby backs but I think most guys on here smoke spares. I realize that they are cheaper but I have found them to be very fatty. Do you guys trim them and what is the cutting process once they are finished?? I think I will post about this.
    Thanks!
     
  12. I trimmed alot of the fat away and cut them "St. Louis" style. I learned how to prep them in an earlier post. After they cooked they cut just like BBs, very similar in apperence.
     
  13. I'd hammer that! great looking ribs

    I'm from ohio to when it's colder out use hardwood lump charcoal , it will help you hold your heat alot better . You can get it about anywhere lowes , menards , and I think walmart has it to.
    I haven't tried trimming spares into saint loius style but I would like to learn the best way. I love saint louis style

  15. I perfer a lump coal but all I could find was Cowboy Lump and to be frank I'd rather use newspaper........So I resorted to Kingsford this time only.
