This simple take on spare ribs will blow your mind with flavor
2Racks of St. Louis cut Pork Spare Ribsfind the freshest you can find... it matters!
4TCoarse Grind Pepper - a step below cracked pepper - this part is key
2TCoarse Sea Salt
Spritz for Ribs
1/4CupApple Cider Vinegar
Heat your smoker to 275 F
Trim any excess fat off your ribs. Do not remove any membranes on the back of the ribs.
Mix the rub and shake it on the ribs on both sides evenly until you have a nice texture forming. See pictures.
Smoke for 3 hours - spritzing with a mixture of 25% Apple Cider Vinegar and 75% Water every 45 minutes
Coat with a few tablespoons of BBQ Sauce on each side and Wrap the ribs meat side down. Choose your favorite BBQ sauce. Because the ribs have quite a bit of salt and pepper on them, I think a sweet sauce pairs the best. Smoke for 2 Hours.
Rest for 20-30 minutes in foil, cut and serve. Try this. You will like it.... a lot. For only having salt and pepper on them for a rub... these blew my mind.
