Default How do you make rib tips?

I bought 4 slabs of spares the other day and trimmed them into St. Louies. I now have a couple pounds of tips that I froze. I would like to make rib tips for dinner tomorrow but I'm a little nervous about screwing them up. Any tips for making tips?

Smoke em with rub of your choice. They are good for experimenting with new rubs/techniques so you don't have to risk a whole rack if you don't like. Remember, they will cook faster than racks.

I just cook them with the ribs which they were trimmed from, makes a great snack while cooking or I add them to baked beans.

^ Yep to all the above. I'll get them started just like ribs but take them off after an hour and a half, put them on a foil pan with 50/50 BBQ sauce and apple juice, cover tightly and back on the pit to "braise" for another hour. Mmmm, Mmmm good!
