I mentioned challenges and snafus. The challenge was: these were pre-seasoned racks from the grocery store that my parents happened to be in. They were evidently an impulse buy. My parents know not to buy spareribs unless they're labeled "St Louis style" after a few times of getting frustrated with all the cartilage in standard spares. Well, this company thought they'd be sneaky and season regular spares and label them St. Louis knowing the seasoning would be a nice disguise. So- I grabbed a knife and made them true St. Louis styles. That seasoning was quite slippery.
The snafu- I only remembered to take the membrane off of one of the racks. Oops.
I did adjust the seasonings by adding some turbinado sugar to them before putting them on, as well. My taste buds say that was a good call.
