Trimming spare ribs
I am going to try some spare ribs Sunday for the first time. After many tries at BB's, 4 hrs @ 250, no foil, I get them like I like them. I think I will try the spares @250 for 5 hrs? But the question is, why do people trim the spares so they become St. Louis ribs? Aren't they trimming away lots of "good stuff"? I thought I'd smoke them untrimmed, any suggestions? Thanks.
