St. Louis Style Ribs

1 rack of St. Louis style ribs tonight from Berkshire Heritage Pig. These are black pigs with sweeter and darker meat. Originally bred in Berkshire, England. In Japan they are known as Kurobuta, they are to pork what Waygu and Kobe are to beef. The night before coated with light Karo syrup and powered Honey rub, set in fridge. Next day set the Big Green Egg up with pecan and peach wood added to BGE lump charcoal. Got the temp up to 325-350. Rubbed ribs with worchestershire and used Oak Ridge BBQ’s Dominator rub. Cooked for 1 hour 40 minutes. Sauced the last 20 minutes with a 50/50 mix of Blues Hog regular and their Tennessee Red, removed and rested under foil for 10 minutes. Unbelievable!!!

    Those look incredible.  You did yourself a disservice with the title thread though.  Those aren't regular spares - those are Turbo Berkshire Spares!

    Awesome! Look like Baby backs to me though. No matter, great ribs is great ribs. Bravo!

    i did a couple racks recently and they cooked faster than the standard ones I regularly cook. What say you? Cook time same, less, or more?

    They cooked the same time for me. Even though they have more curvature than typical St. Louis, that's what they are. I get them on special order from Sierra Meat and Seafood out of Reno.

    Good point on the description. I'll think more next time.
