I want to be able to feel how tender my ribs actually are as I'm slicing them. So, I use a 6" curve boning knife - rigid, not flexible. Sometimes you try a rib off the end and it's the perfect tenderness, or even a little over done, but as you cut the ribs you discover that the middle of the slab is a little tight. It's easy to tell my the resistance you feel as you cut. This has saved me turning in tough ribs many times.

Lately have been using a chefs knife or which one is sharp. I need a set of good knives. That is what I am asking from Santa. Will have to make sure I am extra good

I've been using a smaller knife lately. Easier for me to work on the slight curve in spares without looking ragged.

I like to use dental floss.. OK!

After that last turn in box at Clovis I will need to think hard about it for 2009, we are done for 2008. Started out using the 14 inch Forschner Granton, then went to the 10 inch Chefs knife. I have a friend in the CBBQA that competes and swears buy the 7 inch boning knife, may have to give that a try.

Did not read any posted before this, will be intrested in the responses.

Mod: Will definitly have to try the boning knife this weekend on the spares!

I use a cleaver in a rocking motion on the backside of my spares. Perfect everytime.
