I don't think they came out too bad for a beginner. Thanks to thirdeye for having that pictorial on your site. As I was saying, not perfect, but hopefully close enough. What do you all think?

The trimmed spares:

And the trimmings:

Now to rub and let rest while I go get some adult beverages. ;)

    Excellent job.

    What are you planning to do with the trimmings?
  • ResQueResQue Posts: 1,045
    Don't know yet. Might freeze them and cook them another day or throw them on with the spares and save them for something. thinking tamales or enchiladas.
  • Pig Candy. Cut them into thin slices rub with 50/50 cayenne and brown sugar and cook alongside the ribs. Mmmmmmm good.

    That's sounds good. i think I'll try that. Thanks.
  • They'll be done before the ribs, nice afternoon snack. Take em off when they get pliable, and be carefull the sugar gets hot and sticky.

    I hope you kept the trimmings to cook rib tips or even better, pull all the bone out and grind up into sausage....makes for a good eat and already has a great fat to meat ratio....

    Thanks everyone! I think I will take your advice and do pig candy and sausage. Thanks again.

    I kept the trimmings. I will make pig candy out of the skirt and sausage out of the rib tips. Thanks for the advice!

    Thanks Ross.
  • Good job on those spares. What are you going to make with the trimmings? I like making carnitas with them.

    pig candy and sausage. Man, I love carnitas. Do you have a recipe you can share?
  • fine lookin spares
  • i rub the trimmings extra sweet and smoke alongside...they cook faster, so i chop them, honey and sauce them, and put them back in in foil after about 2-3 hours.

    the 'rib tips' get eaten quicker than the ribs around here.
