Did you know there are some people out there that don’t like to eat BBQ ribs? I know! Weird, right??? I ran into a few of these weirdo’s at a cookout one time and I launched into full-on interrogation mode because I couldn’t comprehend the idea of not wanting to gnaw on a pork bone. Turns out both of these people (yeah, real scientific evidence, I know) said that ribs were “too hard” to eat and in fact, they actually like baby back ribs because hey, they sell them at Chili’s! Ignoring the fact that they implied Chili’s ribs set some kind of rib bar in their minds, it turns out that they didn’t really know what to do with the tip on a spare rib. It’s true, a spare rib tip is a strange cut of meat. There is some delicious meat to be had on the tip, but it’s a little difficult to get to with all of the cartilage. So how do we make it “easier” on these poor rib novices to eat a “real” rib? St. Louis ribs style, that’s how!
