I would say huge improvement. Still need cleaner cuts, big mistake people make is not letting the knife do the work, If you need to push hard, it is too dull. I also like bone up.

I would agree with both points made by Jacked Up. Biggest mistakes we made when starting: not using the proper knife and thinking we could get 8 turn-in ribs from one or two racks.

It looks like you are using spares. Do not worry about getting 4 turn-in ribs from one rack and 4 from another, which it appears you did here. Rather, do your "Hollywood" cut and then simply take the best 8 looking ribs. You may need to cook 3-4 racks in comps to get those 8 ribs to turn-in. You are going to sacrifice more with spares than you will with baby backs given the nature of the bones.

The second pic looks pretty good.

I would flip the front row over though.
I think they would lay better in the box.

Keep up the good work.

So what is the idea...what do you want to see in a box? I'm guessing you want uniformity in length? I see some people presenting their ribs on their side showing off the smoke ring. What is the preferred method of turn in...because I looked @ the "worst you've ever turned in" thread, and thought they all looked awesome.
