what to do with corned spare ribs [From Boston Board]

I was at the local butcher when some guy was special ordering some corned spare ribs. I asked what to do with them, and he said: we make them like corned beef, only they're better. Well, I thought about this for a few days and decided I needed to try them. So now I've ordered a few pounds. If I can't think of anything better, I will just boil 'em up. But any other thoughts?

I'm a HUGE fan of spareribs, and twice I bought these in error. They were horrible failures both times and I boiled once time. Way too salty. I really can't recommend doing anything with them, I don't know how people eat 'em. I love corned beef, by the way.
I wouldn't boil them...I would put them in a roaster on racks with a few inches of water underneath..cover and cook at 325 for a couple of hours. I'd rinse them before putting them onto the racks...Then I'd cut them into two rib portions and bake them or broil to crisp them up a bit..
I would also ask the butcher where you bought them how they would prepare them..They will most likely know exactly what to do...I've never heard of "corned ribs" before.. Good Luck!!
