Around here (southwest MI, or northcentral IN, think South Bend) rib tips sell alot more than ribs. At the BBQ joints that is. Probably the opposite at the grocery store.
I buy a 10lb. box for about $12 at the famous 'hillbilly meatmarket' in town. Anybody been to Lowery's meat market in Buchanan MI? Or Frankies BBQ in South Bend IN?
Those look awesome btw!
