Default Do you sauce both sides of your ribs?

I've heard that some people on rub the top side of their ribs. I was curious about sauce. Do you put the sauce on both sides of the ribs, just the top or turn in a dry rub rib?

We sauce the bottom side only once and the top twice. I don't like flipping them around much so we only sauce the bottoms when we are pulling them out of the foil.

I sauce and rub both sides.. pay a little less attention to the bottoms though. Jst quick dashs and brushes.

I think it all stems back to years ago, when watching emeril and he was seasoning both sides of something, he said,

"I hate one sided tasting food."

thats stuck and now I feel guilty when I ignore the bottoms. i even put rub on the fat caps of butts and briskets and I know some people ignore them too.

Ribs were meant to be eaten with the sauce on the side.

My logic is that most people bite a rib with the curve going up. You have to get the judges attention on the first bite. So why have all of the flavor stuff on the top if the judges tongue is on the bottom?

I'm a both on this one.
Rub and sauce.
Just not much on the bone side.
Sometimes no sauce at all.
Can I change my vote?

If the sauce is on the side, how do you get sauce in the middle of the rib?

I think I am broken then, I have the curve down.

We slather, rub, then cook and then put a slight layer of sauce on the tops only (just like the brisket to give it a shiny finish)

So when you eat your rib, it looks like a smile instead of a frown? Weird, man...
