Default Rib question

Thanking about swapping from spares to loin back ribs. In the KCBS comps. Being KCBS judges see mostly spares. Do y'all thank they get judged equally

We have had success with both. The back ribs, to me, are harder to get in the box due the the curvature of the bone.

Cook what you cook best. Just practice on your box beforehand and have a plan.

I switched from BB to spares a few years back. I had some success with BB but not near as much with the spares. IMHO a spares box looks better than a BB box. Again just my opinion. I had difficulty finding BB racks with straight bones up here as well.

I dont think it matters as long as your rib kicks ass. Turn in a crappy rib and it wont matter if they are spares/loin backs/berkshire/koyubuto whatever

Yes, I broke down and used foil on my pellet cooker too.

Cook what you cook best!

That advice comes from the multitude of threads posted here and elsewhere and on my time as a cook and judge.

Good Luck.
