St. Louis Style Smoked Pork Ribs
When Tim sat down to create these mouthwatering ribs, he looked to Kansas City and Memphis for inspiration. He concluded that he wanted to combine the tastes of Charlie Vergos’s famous dry rub ribs with the saucy flavors of his Kansas City favorites while still paying homage to Texas and his St. Louis roots.
He decided to use a St. Louis style cut of ribs – a nice uniform slab that cooks evenly and presents well. Then, to honor Memphis BBQ, he seasoned the ribs with a rub of spices to create the flavor typically found in a dry rubbed rib.Of course, dry rub ribs are not really a “thing” where Tim was raised in the Midwest. So, he created a sauce and lightly basted the ribs prior to entering the smoker. He then pulled them out midway to give them another gentle baste and impart the sauce's flavor while still maintaining much of the original dry rub taste.
Finally, the ribs are smoked for hours over his blend of oak, hickory and fruit wood to create a totally unique flavor. Ribs with a “bite.” Ribs with a crusty, saucy finish, and have you asking for more. Ribs that truly represent the crossroads of American BBQ.

These ribs are AWESOME. It seems like everyone here in St. Louis drowns their ribs in barbecue sauce and brags about how they fall off the bone. So nice to be able to get a dry rubbed rib with a little bite to it!
As an expert BBQ tester (no this not my full-time job), I have to say that Tim has really hit on something here. The combination of tastes was really unique and everyone at my party loved them.
