Default House of Grills Rib Cook Off

Received this in an e-mail Saturday from the House of Grills, a privately owned Weber store located in Ewardsburg, Mi just north of South Bend, IN. I'll be stopping in today to pay my entry fee. Wifey has no problem if I add another Weber to the collection, now all I have to do is go out there and please the judges. The question I have is should I go with St. Louis spares or Baby Backs?

The date is this Saturday, 09/15/07. Sorry about that. The guy said he was going to have a big tent w/ a big screen TV so no one would miss the ND v UM game but that was before everyone found out how terrible both teams are. This will probably be the only game where both teams lose!
