Time to try some different ribs. I found St. Louis style ribs for $2.49 a lb. There are 4 different types of pork ribs, baby back, spare ribs, country style and St. Louis style which are spare ribs that have been trimmed of the breastbone, cartilage and tips.
Onto the grill at 230 ish degrees. I also put on a few beef hot dogs for lunch, gold potatoes for potato salad and some kosher salt in the foil. I was wanting some smoked salt for something I made here a while back. It sells for crazy amounts of money online so I decided to make my own. 🙂
The ribs were on for 6.5 hours. I spritzed the ribs every half hour or so with a mixture of sugar, water, vinegar and some iced tea. I did the bend test where when you pick up the rack in the center it bends easily and starts to tear a little. If you like them fall-off-the-bone you can keep going until they easily rip when picked up. I like a little chew to them. I wrapped the potatoes in foil after about 4 hours. Once they were soft I cut them up and let them cool for my potato salad. Use any potato salad recipe you like substituting the smoked potatoes in.
