I have not done ribs yet, but love them and like to try it.
This was a pretty basic run and i was kind of time constrained, so i didn't go "all out" on them. I used a basic Cajun/Pork rub that i bought as a pre-mix and added that about 2 hours ahead of time and let sit in the 'fridge. Got the smoker fired up to 225F (based on a number of online posts/recipies i read) and waited for the mesquite to start smoking. Added the ribs, waited for the temp to recover to close to the 225 mark, then set the timer for 2 hours. Added about a 1/2 load of new chips about half way though which probably wasn't neccessary (still new at this remember). After the smoke i pulled them out and slapped them on the grill which was running around 275F and kept them on their just long enough to get a nice BBQ sauce basting cooked on. for the sauce, again, nothing special. Jack Daniels store bought i think it was.
The only thing i think i would do different next time would be to make up my own rub and maybe not put water in the smoker's water pan.
