St. Louis style spare ribs are more meat and fat
To prepare St. Louis style spare ribs, start by preparing a full rack of spare ribs. Trim the meat with a sharp knife or a rib trimmer. Ensure that you do not cut any connective tissue or un-renderable fat. After trimming the ribs, smoke them with wood chips. You can find wood chips at your local butcher or grocery store.

The ribs are usually wrapped in aluminum foil before baking. Then, rub them with a dry rub, making sure to rub the meat side of the ribs. Place them on a pyrex pan or rimmed baking sheet. After an hour, remove the ribs from the oven and let them sit uncovered for at least an hour or two. Once they’ve reached a desired internal temperature, you can serve them with additional sauce.
The difference between St. Louis style ribs and regular spare ribs comes down to their skin. The membrane is a thin translucent white layer that covers half of the rib. Remove it with a knife or your fingers. This will allow more meat to be exposed, while the membrane will not render down as much during cooking. This helps create a more juicy rib.
If you want to make your own St. Louis style spare ribs, you can use a dry rub or even a sauce. Many meat suppliers offer a variety of sizes and weights of ribs. Some of them sell wholesale but will also sell to retail customers. You can also look for wholesale meat suppliers in the Yellow Pages.
