Smoking St Louis style ribs using this recipe for your next backyard BBQ is a sure way to impress all your family and friends with your cooking abilities.  I personally like St Louis style ribs over baby backs and spare ribs because St Louis style ribs have more meat than baby backs and don’t have all that cartilage like spare ribs.

Simply start by seasoning your ribs with kosher salt, black pepper and your favorite BBQ rub then throw them on the smoker at 225 degrees until they hit an internal temperature of 145 degrees.  Then wrap them in aluminum foil filled with brown sugar, an apple cider vinegar and BBQ sauce mixture, a stick of butter and some honey.  When your St Louis style ribs hit 203 degrees internally finish them off with a glaze and prepare to have your taste buds blown away!
