Default Baby backs or spares

Just trying to get an idea of current rib trends in the comp bbq world.(within the last year) Private poll, nobody will see what you voted for. I know some will say they want to vote "both" Not giving the option, If both then just vote for the one more used and/or more successful with.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

I do BBs, and have been doing well with them in KCBS this year.

Spares. A little bigger and easier to cut. Also, easier to make them look 'purty' for the judges.

In order to be truthful, I do have to note that we've won with both within the last year.

Sled,

From the 4 contests that I have judged here in Florida the spares are used more so than the baby backs.

Whoops, I almost voted but hit the back arrow instead just in time. I don't compete.

Slower Lower is back to doing spares and we suck WAY worse than Jacked Up, so take this FWIW.

We were lifelong fans of BBs before doing competition, but we went with spares at all our comps (cuz that what's wins, right?) except for the last one. Our spares stunk up to that point, so we decided to try BBs. The ribs were so bad, I almost threw the box away and didnt turn in. Needless to say, they did not do well. Finally, our last practice cook turned out awesome spares. And we are doing another practice this weekend before our next comp in 2 weeks. Spares are on for us again.

Would like to hear some more judges comments as well. Maybe an observation such as one particular cut seems to be turned in overcooked more than the other?

Generally depends on where (location in the nation) and which
sanctioning body. Here, rarely in KCBS do BB's do well at all. However,
I dont recall ever seeing a spare take a MIM event. I think it has to
do with judges and their expectations. Me, I prefer BB's when judging.
