what type of ribs for a kcbs comp?

bb or spares? I looked at the rules and they don't say anything other than bone in - not country style.

Thanks.

I started out using BB but switched to Spares last year. I have been getting better results witht the Spares in all around scores. I was having a hard time finding three racks of BB that were even in size so I learned to cut the Spares. Hope this helps.

By the way, country style ribs arent ribs at all. They are butts that have been cut from the bone and are sold for twice the price.

Bill, are you saying they are twice the price of butts or ribs ? We get the country style ribs here usually around$1.99lb. We're big fans !!

Thanks.
man, that's like asking foil or no foil... i use bb's but just as many use spares. use what ever you have the best experience cooking.
well at least I didn't ask whether to put my brisket fat cap up or down

thanks for the responses. You can use either which is what I was wondering. It would seem that spares would fill the container a little better.

It's because of the rub you're using, not the type of ribs! [smilie=a_chuckle.gif]
