Ditto. 3 & down for comp ribs.

Thicker, wider, meatier and of course, better fat content.

Hey Jacked Up, Are you saying that the average St Loui is 3 #, or that the spares are 3 #. I ussually buy spares that weigh around 4.5 # and trim them down to to about 2.2 # St. Louies. I'm curious if the 4.5 spare that I start out with would be correctly referred to as a 3 and down St Louie.

The actual St louis cut would be 3lbs

The entire brand thing to me doesn't mean much if I am just buying a commodity pig anyway

Can you actually buy st. louis ribs raw? All I've seen is precooked ones in the store. Trimming isn't too bad but I'm all for convenience!
