Just got me some nice spareribs. I read online that in order to turn them into St Louis ribs you need to " remove the rib tip and also the skirt flap".
Ummmm, what does this mean? LOL
Whats that, trim the ribs up?
Thanks man.. Ive mostly cooked baby backs, but wanted to try spare ribs. Upon searching the web for cooking ideas, I came across "remove the rib tip and also the skirt flap" and had no clue WTF they were talking about LOL... But your links helped me out :) It took me about 20min to trim her up. They have been In the fridge for about 16hrs seasoned with rub. Just a few more hours to go before its cook time.
You trimmmed them up nicely. With practice and a good knife, you'll knock that down to just minutes. Smoke them alongside the ribs, they won't take nearly as long, especially the flap. Pull when done and munch on them or save for a "McRib" Sandwhich.

DAMNIT, that sucks.. So on this track I will have ribs done in the next 45min or so.. Guess I can foil them for 3 hrs LOL.
Thank for the input. Ill try the tooth pick test here shortly and report back.
