Top two favorite BBQ pork rib joints in L.A.?

Please let me know your top two favorite BBQ joints in L.A. Favorite and runner-up in that order.
I see BBQ threads all the time but they get wordy. I don't want you to write reviews. I don't care about parking, service, chipped plates, etc.
I don't want to know who does the best Mac-n-Cheese, brisket, yams, just your favorite pork ribs -- baby back ribs, spare ribs, St. Louis ribs, Kansas City ribs, rib tips, small ends, whatever.
The only rule is if you don't see wood smoke, or a BBQ smoker, then you can't vote for them.
My number 1: Phillips -- Leimert Park
Number 2. Phillips -- Crenshaw Blvd
1. Bludso's -- Long Beach Blvd.
2. Phillips II -- Centinela Ave.
If caterers/vendors qualified, The Park's Finest would be #2 and Bigmista's would tie for #3.
JnJ Burger Shack & BBQ on Adams.
I agree with your rule about seeing the smoke, it's what turned me off of JR's BBQ on La Cienega a while back and helped me find JnJ.
9868 Garvey Ave, El Monte, CA 91733
I'm with you, Hershey:
1. Phillip’s (Chino)
2. Phillip’s (Leimert Park)
Go for the rib tips, mixed sauce on the side. Best bite, best flavor, best deal.
You do know that "pork ribs" include baby back, spare ribs and St. Louis ribs-which are spare ribs with the "tips" cut off.
JR's does use wood smoke, they just don't make good BBQ.
My choices for pork ribs- spare ribs.
