Wife has asked for St. Louis style ribs. No problem there. Wife and kids Don't like beans.If I smoke the trim and just leave it in the foil to 200* will it come out something like pulled pork?
More meat please !! :-)

    Your post is a little confusing at first brotha! I don't think the trimmings would be pulled pork-like to be honest. Pork butt is a really fatty cut which has a lot to do with why you're able to cook it to such a high internal temp. Ribs aren't nearly as fatty and I think you're going to get a really dry product at that temperature. Never did it though so I could be off, but it doesn't sound right to me.

    IT WORKED !! I cut the ribs St.louis style and they were just a little wider than Baby backs. I left all of the trim in foil,with a little apple juice after smoking,and ended up with about a pound of pulled pork style meat.The next time I do this I will take pics.There was no shortage of grease when I opened the foil after three hours of sitting on the egg while the ribs were finished and eaten.
    More meat please !! :-)
