St Louis Worth A Buck?

Ribs on sale this week so I'm in for my first rack on the LBGE.  St Louis Style is $1/lb more - Worth it? Thinking about going low and slow with a little smoke.

    $1/lb more than what  Some have found great rib deals within the past week or so.

    I'm in Louisville and last week I found spares (not St Louis trimmed) for 1.89/#-this past week I have been stock-piling BB's at 1.99/# ( I prefer St louis but at that price...).  So from my perspective I would wait unless your area history indicates that this is about as good as it gets. FWIW-YMMV-

    I screwed up on the price - The STL's were $2.99.  Cooked them up tonight.  Came out great for my first time - Will post some pics tomorrow or so.

    Even after two years I still love experimenting; I'd buy a rack of each and cook them side-by-side, see which I preferred.  I do admit ribs is the one cook that I'm still inconsistent on, although I haven't done a lot of them (brisket, chicken and stir-frys are my favorites).
