Default St Louis Style cut BB

Just saw on another thread that many of you trim your ribs St Louis style. I can't find anywhere in my town that sells them this way and was wondering if anyone could give a quick tutorial on how they do it. Also, there was mention of removing the flap from the ribs. What is the flap??

It is the portion of the slab which kinda folds over with a silverish membrane attached.

Don't toss it, or the "knuckles" you cut off (those be rib tips). Smoke it all up, and the flap is snacks or sliced into beans or something.

So it is basically a rack of spare ribs with the tips and the flap/skirt cutoff? Is that correct?

Thanks Bigmista, I wasn't sure what cut they were and thought that was a certain cut of BB instead of spare ribs.

Any differences in cooking spares as opposed to BB? One takes longer than the other? I've never done spares.
