Ribs: Who gets Em All From The Same Slab? And Who Mixes And Matches?
Curious to see what the preferences are and why. I know you have to mix and match when doing the "Hollywood Cut".

What's the "Hollywood cut?"

Smokin Mike 04-09-2011 11:44 AM

Rather than cutting ribs midway between bones, the cut is made close to the adjacent bones in order to yield a rib with more meat on each side, that is a hollywood cut.

I try to get all the ribs for turn in from one slab, makes for a prettier box (after I made d@mn sure that they are cut all the way thru).

One slab to rule them all
More often than not there is one slab that stands out in terms of taste and tenderness combined, and I get as many good ribs out of that as I can. Usually I go with 8 ribs ni the box, so I end up having to take a couple from another rack. Those go on the bottom level (I stack 4 over 4), so I know at least 4 judges will be getting the ribs from the best rack. If none of the other racks are in the same ballpark, I only hand in six ribs.

Kcbs one slab. Fba 2 or 3 slabs as you may turn 12 to 15 ribs. 13 today

I'm guessing that the hollywood cut was a fad that didn't stay popular for too long in KCBS based on what I've been reading.

All out of the same rack.

Same rack

Mix and match.

We are mix and match in KCBS and FBA.

I always heard it referred to as the 'Cadillac Cut'.

Same rack--hopefully.

Captain P.J. 04-10-2011 10:28 PM

Depends how the cook goes... and I've heard them called "dino bones"...

meatinc 04-11-2011 03:29 PM

Same rack (hopefully). If I can get 5 bones put together and 1 bone from another rack that I place on its' side I'm good too.
