So I've been a long time lurker of this site for a few years now and I've learned a lot from everyone on here. I finally joined the site, because I need some advice on smoking spare ribs. My wife and I are hosting her father's 65th birthday party this weekend and my wife put me in charge of the main dish... spare ribs.
I usually rub on a thin base of yellow mustard along with some rub seasoning and smoke the ribs for about 4-4.5 hours @ 225 degrees with fruit wood chips. I can't do mustard this time, because my father-in-law is allergic to it. Mustard is the only thing I've ever done and they come out great every time. I've read about olive oil and even a fruit jam/jelly base online, but would like some advice from people on this forum.
What would you suggest to use other than Mustard?
