St Louis question

Bought a slab of spare ribs and had the butcher cut them into SL style. What can i use the remaining meat for?

Also one week ago i thawed a prime rib roast but ran out of time to cook it. How long will it hold? It's wrapped in Saran wrap.

    cut up the skirt and cook it the same as you do the ribs. Now you have rib tips. We also put the rib tips in with our baked beans. As far as the rib roast, it may be too late. how long was it thawed before last week?

    The rib roast can ride for a while. Unwrap it and let it sit for a couple more weeks and bam, you got dry aged goodness. Cook the tips along with the ribs great snack they do cook quicker though.

    Another option with the flap meat after cooking with the ribs is to use in ABT's-great flavor. The flap will cook quicker than the ribs so keep an eye on it-toothpick test works well to determine when finished.  WRT the rib roast-either get into the dry aging as mentioned above or let your nose be the guide and go for it.

    I always throw them on with the ribs... I like to smoke them up on a small piece of foil to keep them from falling through the cracks. I use the smoked tips for baked beans all the time... Also, if you throw them into a slow cooker with pinto beans, it flavors them very nicely.
