Actually, while I love braised short ribs, I think the best way to use them is to make mini briskets-on-a-stick.

Coat them with your favorite brisket rub and put them bone side down on your cooker at 225* for 7-9 hours... Crispy bark and oh-so tender inside...

Gotta go, getting hungry!!!!!

Oh, one more thing, St. Louis cuts are just trimmed up spare ribs. You can do this your self and save a bunch of money...
