Default Ribs: Who gets Em All From The Same Slab? And Who Mixes And Matches?

Curious to see what the preferences are and why. I know you have to mix and match when doing the "Hollywood Cut".

Rather than cutting ribs midway between bones, the cut is made close to the adjacent bones in order to yield a rib with more meat on each side, that is a hollywood cut.

I try to get all the ribs for turn in from one slab, makes for a prettier box (after I made d@mn sure that they are cut all the way thru).

Default One slab to rule them all

More often than not there is one slab that stands out in terms of taste and tenderness combined, and I get as many good ribs out of that as I can. Usually I go with 8 ribs ni the box, so I end up having to take a couple from another rack. Those go on the bottom level (I stack 4 over 4), so I know at least 4 judges will be getting the ribs from the best rack. If none of the other racks are in the same ballpark, I only hand in six ribs.

I'm guessing that the hollywood cut was a fad that didn't stay popular for too long in KCBS based on what I've been reading.

I always heard it referred to as the 'Cadillac Cut'.
