We've gotten incredible ribs from them, great bacon, and pork chops that sent my normally stoic father-in-law into rapture.
Can you tell me if their ribs are trimmed to the St. Louis style, or is it the whole spare rib?

I believe Nahunta had both. We got the whole spare ribs. At MAE, it's really hit or miss with what they have in stock, given the small size of the farm. Last pack I saw from them was St. Louis style.

BJ's has two packs and we buy them every time when we smoke ribs. Even people who don't like ribs request them they are so yummy. Sometimes you get a little too much fat on top but you just have to pick some that don't.

I like Baby Back Ribs and usually can find them at only Food Lion. Uncooked. But I don't smoke them...I cook them in oven and then toss them on grill (gas).

Kroger has back loin ribs for 2.49lb that are kick a$$. Lots of meat not a lot of fat. Been picking up a rack every couple weeks. The spareribs are 1.99 lb but they don't look as good. Big but more fat and bone. A large rack runs approx 8-10$ of the baby back. Much better then any restaurants I've had. My secret rub is one they carry at Trader Joe's it's a coffee,garlic bbq dry rub. Coat night before. Cook in foil for 3+ hours at 350. Will make you sing that Chili's can stuff their baby back baby back ribs.

Costco's ribs are generally superior to grocery store ribs because they don't come prepacked with the solution. I don't shop at BJ's, so can't speak to them. I don't think I've ever seen ribs at the Farmer's market Nahunta, meaning you probably have to go earlier in the day that I do

Considering OP asked this question 5 years ago, I'm sure their ribs craving has been perfectly sated. Seriously why don't people see when threads have been started before responding in hopes of padding their post count?

We've been getting great uncooked baby back ribs at the Butcher's Market (in Raleigh or Cary). They also have St Louis style.
