Oh holy cow! Not only do those ribs look awesome, but you’ve got a freakin’ Klose?!?!?!

What is that, 20x36 or 20x42? Those are sweet rigs…..too bad they cost more than the car I’m currently driving (95 Honda Civic)! Very impressive Uncle Bob, very impressive indeed!

Are those all spare ribs trimmed to St. Louis style? Or is it a mix of spare and baby back, or just all back ribs?

St. Louis style is when you take a full slab of pork spare ribs and cut off the brisket and tip, and usually the flap as well. This gives you a uniform and rather rectangular slab of pork spare ribs.

You basically go from this

you do this

and get this

With St. Louis style, you end up on the end of the slab with more cartilage pieces than bone, so some will cut it down even further to smaller Kansas style that is a smallish almost square slab with just the large bone pieces.

Check this site.

I thought the two on the top shelf were St Louis and the rest were backs!!

Nice job. You don't have a problem mixing backs with spare ribs? Backs are so tender to start with, I've been afraid to mix 'em (remember my "too soft" fiasco with spare ribs not long ago!)

And a 20x42.......sweet, sweet, sweet! Can I come camp out and sleep next to that rig one night?!?!?

It's not a problem to mix them, If ya don't go by the clock! It's all about the temperature of each slab, and fire control. The two very small loin backs (on the right) came off first. The spares last.

Ahhhhhh……ok. That’s what I was thinking, you’d have to pull the loin ribs first. I've never really checked temp on my ribs, I just go by time and pull back of the meat on the bone. Guess I should get one of those fancy digital remote thermometers. I've always wanted one anyway!

Lord, I’d hate to forget like I did the other night and ruin some loin ribs. Mushy spare ribs make decent sandwiches, but mushy loin ribs make you cry!
