I was a little hesitate to order the spares after reading some of the reviews, but went ahead and bought two 8pks. Nice marbling and flavor, used the smallest 3 for a practice cook and then used 3 more for our 1st comp. We were fortunate enough to hear our name called last for rib champs. We will be using them for some more comps this year. Thanks Creekstone! Unkown on 1st May 2017
Your carrier was awful, I received my order where box had been dropped busted, cooler box end busted out freeze pack busted slime all over and ribs thawed, except for two slabs. I am very hesitant to use the rest of my order since I had no means of determining the temp of the other ribs! I did cook the two racks that had not thawed, they were great taste but little bit larger in weight than I thought they might be. I'm just bummed out over loosing the bulk of my order.

We received our box of St Louis cut spare ribs on 4/22/16 (Ordered them on 4/19 and changed the order on 4/20). The ribs were still nearly frozen solid when they arrived. In preparation for our next KCBS contest I weighed each rack and 7 our of 8 racks were within our specs (2.6-3.0lbs). Only the rack that was outside that range (2.2lbs) would be considered "too thin" for contest for us. All appear to have very nice marbling, nice color and NO shiners. Overall I'm very happy with the product! When you consider the free shipping it ended up being about what you'd pay for a rack of ribs retail and you're getting a superior duroc product.

Arrived barely cool. Cooked our first two racks Saturday. Have 3 shiners in one rack. Thought these would be the bomb. Not so. barbarat on 4th Apr 2016
I have cooked the Duroc ribs several times side by side with ribs obtained from grocery/Sam's/butcher shop. The ribs were always cooked in a contest environment using the same methods on the same cookers at the same time. The product was the only significant variable.
Without fail, the Creekstone ribs were always chosen to be the entry in the competition.
The Creekstone product is always a darker red meat than the generic ribs. There is also a difference in the texture and mouth feel; difficult to explain but the Duroc was always superior to the generic product.
To be honest, these Duroc ribs are too pricey for those people that think that the baby backs at a chain restaurant are among their favorites. But if you are looking to impress a highly developed pallet or get that extra edge in a BBQ contest, then the Duroc ribs are well worth the investment. Kent Siegrist on 7th Mar 2016
