Spares vs Baby Backs

I just want to see everyone's opinion on the subject, I don't think it has been asked yet.

Me personally I like regular spares with a St. Louis cut to them. Baby Backs just do do it for me, I mean they are good because I made them and I am the best Pit Master in the World ( according to me. )

So what is everyone opinion? I leave it to you!

I like spares over BB's because they taste better to me and they are cheaper. I don't bother cutting them St Louis style but will trim up the thinners flaps of meat. With that said I haven't made BB's in over a year so I will probably do some in the near future for a change of pace.

I vote for spares. Those are real ribs. The curvy bone stuff is overpriced yup food.

Spares with the St. Louis cut for me. More meat than baby backs.

Let me see ... my bride like BB so I guess I like BB. I really do like BB and find them much easier to prepare, no St. Louis trimming. I do like the cheaper price on spares.

Spares. Trimmed or un-trimmed. Trimmed, you get that "extra" of the rib-tips for the pitmaster's snack, or added to beans/etc.

More flavor in the spares, too.

I also like the price mo-bettah than the high price of BBacks.

Had an old cooking pal who specialized in the loin backs from Sams. Tell everybody they was BB's just like at the rib joints. Heck some of them pass off spares as BB's. There is some ingenious entrepreneurs out there in the world huh?
