I trim them to St. Louis for a few reasons. First it looks good and it's what people think of when they think ribs. I trim the belly from the rib tips then throw everything on the smoker after putting rub on everything. The trimmings are usually done first and can be cut up for little snacks or used to see how the cook is going.
