When you say loin strap, are you referring to the extra band of meat that goes accross the top of the ribs?

Should I be trimming that off? or upgrade the quality of the ribs I'm using? Usually they cook ok, but are sometimes hard to cut nice and clean. Will judges score down on appearance, if it is not removed?

I removed it last comp for the first time and took 4th (out of 48 ) could be other things but I think it helped. Really liked the evenness...



I noticed the same problem trying to get a smooth cut.

I am not the greatest rib cook but I always trim them to an even thickness.

That is what I'm referring to. I only see those on Costco's and Sams' ribs in this area. Both stores seem to be using IBP and Swift ribs lately.

If you're cooking them evenly and they don't tear when cutting I wouldn't worry about it. The ribs in your picture looked great to me.
