    A nice set of (uncooked) Cheshire pork ribs

    Pic first, no suspense.

    Ordered Friday for shipment Monday, delivery Wednesday. NC to NEPA, the weather has been mild and the product arrived frozen solid, with the gel packs solid as well. The dry ice was gone.

    These are full spares, I don’t think the breast bone is in there but part of it could be. [edit: about 1/2 lb of breast bone per rack.] I’ll have to wait until one pack thaws. They’re huge. Each pack is two racks, overlapping slightly. The meat is a nice dark red, and they’re very meaty; no shiners here! Total weight about 30#, order was $202 with free shipping (over $150). This compares favorably with local supermarkets, currently $5.49/lb for full spares with tips, no sternum.

    Before delivery I did contact customer service by email with questions; they were very responsive, with answers within half an hour.

    The rest is up to me. I’ll let you know Sunday evening.

    Not trying to be picky, the pork does look really nice, but don't you mean 30 pounds instead of dollars? That works out to be $6.73/pound, still a good price. Supermarket brands at any price can be used to feed chickens for all I care. I stopped buying commodity pork a long time ago.

    Good score Mosca

      Yeah. 30#. Thanks!

    Cheshire is great pork!! Have a freezer full of it, it is all we use at home and for our KCBS contests, I think you'll be very happy if you have not tried them before! Their pork bellies are awesome also. Love Cheshire!


      I just ordered this same package. I also got 10% off for signing up for something or other - texts or emails or something. This brought the cost down to just over $6/lb. Free shipping as Mosca said. I guess that's a bargain. Just after I ordered them, Barbara called from Aldi's to say they had spare ribs for $1.89/lb and I had to tell her not to buy them because I just spent a fortune on heritage pork ribs. Ugh!


        Well, one of those packages produced two nice St Louis racks, a bunch of tips, and a couple pieces of sternum for beans. I took the tips and cut them into bite-sized pieces, and put some rub that I got at the store on them: “Mitches Meat” or some such. It has salt in it, so I applied it tonight. I’ll get those over the smoke around noon tomorrow, maybe 11:30?

        People were asking about tips. I usually put the tips in and around the racks, and then after a couple hours I move them to over the heat and finish by grilling them. I’ll post pictures tomorrow.

        These are OUTSTANDING. They’re a very deep pork flavor, all dark meat.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
