Default First set of St Louis Ribs

See below for my first ever smoke with St Louis Style Ribs. I got full spares, trimmed the flap and tips for grinding for sausage. Memphis Dust rub and a Lexington Mop. 3-2-1 @ 225. These ribs were the best I've ever made. I have officially been converted from baby backs to spare ribs. Thanks to all of you who have posted such great tips for newer smokers! I've been struggling on a gasser, but finally took the plunge and dropped a little coin on a kamado, and the difference is night and day. Also, is it common for people to make their own rubs, or is doing this unusual? It seems so simple, I don't see why you would buy them?

Nice looking ribs! Lots of folks make their own rubs - you should give it a try. There are tons of great commercial rubs out there, as well. Always fun to try out new stuff, mix & match, etc. Sometimes you can get ideas for your own rub by trying the good commercial ones.

Uncle JJ,
I did make my rub. I got the base idea from Meathead's recipe called Memphis Dust on the Amazing Ribs site. I adjusted portions and made a couple of small additions that gives it a slightly different background. My spice cabinet is full of baggies with different concoctions in them.

You made the Memphis Dust. That's a good starting point to start changing it up. Try adding celery seed or salt, or cumin. Replace the paprika with hungarian smoked paprika. The list goes on and on. Get Chris Lilly's book(Big Bob Gibsons BBQ) which has instructions for a base rub and then goes on with ingredients to start changing it up is a good start as well.
