Smoked Pork Ribs

Pork ribs (Baby Back or Spare Ribs)



Baby Back Ribs are cut from the portion of the rib cage closest to the loin.  Spare Ribs are comprised of the "St. Loius Cut" and "Rib Tips".  If I am doing Spare Ribs I will cut it down and cook the pieces separately.

Rub

Brown sugar
Paprika
Salt
Pepper
Garlic 


Prep

Remove membrane using a paper towel to grab the corner and tear it off from one end to the other.
I go a little heavy on the brown sugar for the rub because I like a sweet taste on the ribs.


Cook


3-2-1

Place on grill for 3hrs at 250
A mop or spritz can be used depending on the flavor you want on your ribs.
Wrap in foil with DP and cook for additional 2hrs
Remove the ribs from the foil and place back on the grill for about 1hr. I usually add a little more rub, or sauce depending on the flavor I am going for in the end.
Ribs should be flexible but not falling apart, as this indicates they are overcooked (In the case of mouthwatering fall off the bone ribs, eat immediately and tell your wife you dropped them and must start over :0)
