Default Trimming Spare Ribs St. Louis Style, what do you do with the "extra"

Greeting Brethren and Sisteren,
Just a quick question. When you trim a rack of spare ribs down St. Louis Style, what do you do with the rib tips and the extra hunk from the bone side? I trimmed down a rack last night and saved the trimmings, but I ma uncertain what to do with them. Could always wrap them in bacon, never hurts. Just saying.

I smoke them along with the ribs. Many uses, very good in BBQ beans or just cooks treats too.

You gotta smoke that stuff up...just wrong to get rid of it. During comps, folks like to share the rib tips with other teams the night before to get some input on their flavor profile.

Just did a rack yesterday and today I am going to smoke up the trimmings, toss them into a pan and coat them with the dripping/bbq mixture off the ribs that I did yesterday, and cook till melt in your mouth tender. Make for a nice lunch snack....maybe dice up them up make a BBQ Sandwich out of it!

Besides smoking them right along with the ribs (which is my favorite thing to do with them), I sometimes grind it up and mix it with ground beef for meatballs or meatloaf.

When doing them at home I cook em just like the St Louis trimmed.
I do remove the big bone on the end. I just slice them up like the St. Louis ribs and the family loves em.

The overwhelming consensus seems to be smoke and eat them. I guess I know what I am having for dinner tonight.

Sometimes I'll smoke spare ribs whole & then cut them St. Louis style after they're done. Other times I'll trim before the cook and smoke separate. Either way seems to work just fine. YMMV. Cheers!!!

90% of the time I smoke them with the ribs. They are a great snack while you wait on the ribs. If I dont have room in the smoker I'll cook them up hot and fast on the grill. Or I'll save them so my wife can use the meat in her stir fry.

Ditto. The extras work well for either of these. That's the beauty of bein, the cook, you get to sample lots-o-que!

I never had any any trimmings. I like Ribs. Why make them smaller?
But some people like them that way. It seems that most people just cook the
trimmings and eat them as snacks while the Ribs cook...just go with whatever
works best for you.
