Tips

Cook's Note:

This recipe is for one rack of spare pork ribs.

After prepping ribs (removing membrane on back of ribs and washing) pat your rack of ribs dry with napkins. Spread the rub all over the ribs, front and back. Let sit a couple hours (optional) in fridge or just wrap in aluminum foil and set in the bbq pit. Smoke for about 5 to 6 hours. The ribs will come out tender and juicy.

This was pretty good. I did omit the second onion powder listed in the ingredients as it seems to be a typo/duplicate. I would have liked a tad more rub and it was just barely enough to coat the 2 half slabs St. Louis style pork ribs. They were flavorful and tender. Next time I would omit the ginger. Thank you for the recipe! Read More

This is an awesome rub! Coat your ribs a couple of hours ahead of time wrap in tinfoil wait... start an indirect charcoal grill place foil wrapped ribs off to the side of the heat and cook for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Remove ribs from foil and slather with your favorite BBQ sauce ( hopefully altered by you or made from scratch!) I like to lightly char the sauce 3-4 times recoating after each char re coat one last time and bring them in to serve! Best. Ribs. Ever. Read More

Super easy to make. My pork spare rubs tasted great. Wasn’t sure why onion powder was listed twice so I only added 1 tablespoon. Read More

This is great!! I had to do it without the celery seed because I didn’t have any. However, I don’t know what I was missing and everything else was amazing!!? Read More

Perfect! Without the celery seed, and I cooked it. My husband hates sauce, but he loved it. I added red pepper flakes. Read More

Excellent and so easy! I reduced the cayenne by half but I think the full amount would've been fine. Read More
