Default SBN contest question

I'm cooking a SMN comp in a few weeks, and was wondering what type of ribs the judges like to see... Baby Backs or Spares (St. Louis).

Thanks in advance!

You probably already know what I'm about to present, but here it is just in case -
I've not judged any SBN comps, but the SBN Contest Rules state:

12. MEAT CATEGORIES
b. Pork Ribs: Loin back (baby back) or spare ribs only, meat on the bone. No country style ribs and no chopped, pulled, or sliced rib meat loose in the box.

Hopefully, either a SBN CBJ or cook team will jump in on this and help you more.

GOOD LUCK! HAVE FUN!!!

Yeah, I'm a little disappointed we haven't / don't hear much from them thar guys 'round here... Hopefully a SBN CBJ can tell you what they see come across the table. I'd love to hear how/if they (the sanctioning body) define the perfect tenderness in a rib. That alone (that definition) will tell you which works better. If it appears closer to the bite-through definition of KCBS, St. Louis spares are probably better suited, or if defined as closer to the pull-cleanly-from-the-bone-with-only-slight-resistance of MBN then a 2 bone cut of loin/baby backs probably fits the bill.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

I cook a good many SBN events. Most SBN cooks turn in spares, with the few exceptions that cook BBs. Their flavors mimic KCBS very closely, but not quite as sweet, and not quite as done. I find they like a little more tug off the bone, but still very tender. You will need to plan on at least 8 bones, single cut, to a box with no garnish. You can fit more and more looks better in an ungarnished box, so I can usually fit 10 or 12 bones, depending on the ribs.
I've cooked ribs for a couple of their judging classes in the past, and that's what their taught to look for.
