Rib Trimming

I have only done a couple of sides of ribs on the egg and I have a question on trimming. I like ribs with that are not trimmed at the knuckles, so I didn't trim anything my first time around. I noticed, though, that the meat that resembles a skirt cooked differently than the ribs themselves.

Do the more experienced eggers trim this skirt off?

    I always remove the skirt flap even if I leave the knuckles attached, which is rare. Trimming off the skirt makes the membrane removal easier as well.

    I prefer to cook them trimmed St. Louis style. That way you can cook everything and pull the thinner pieces when done.
