Rib Tips (Not about advice for cooking ribs)

lemons | Mar 3, 2012 09:19 PM

We have what I think is a fairly local item found at some barbecue joints, rib tips, which are the trimmings from the top and bottom of a side fo spareribs. I happen to love them, since they are usually moister than spareribs, although far messier to eat, and I like chewing on the more gelatinous connective tissues. But my question is: Do they exist as a cut anywhere else besides the St. Louis area?

Please note this is not the so-called St. Louis rib, which is something you don't see on menus locally with a couple of exceptions, and which refers to the way the side of ribs is trimmed.
