    Hope you don't take offense to that?
    I love beef ribs neat. Salt & lots of Pepper. A little mequite and lots of hickory. I prefer well done, tender.
    But I think a teriyaki style would be great also.
    Good luck

    crazy -

    i got a method that has worked well for me. i came up with it on my own, but i developed it using bits and pieces of things i read here and there, including the BBQ FAQ and here at the SMF. (click here to download a safe zip file containing the BBQ FAQ in word document)

    the best part about it is that it's a good one to learn on as well, and when i got good at it i started little variations here and there (making my own rub, substituting different ingredients in the mop, etc). eventually, i gained enough confidence to go out in some really interesting directions. the funy part is that the same basic method that i developed is still the most consistently good one i have found. the rub i specify is my favorite (store-bought) rub, but if you can't find it or prefer a different rub, then feel free to use that instead.

    TasunkaWitko’s Method for Spare Ribs

    (These took 3rd in the 2008 Chinook Annual Rib Cook-off!)

    Stuff needed –

    · Plain, Yellow Mustard
    · Durkee’s St. Louis Style Rub (get more than you think you will need)
    · Low-sodium soy sauce (Kikkoman is good)
    · Dr. Pepper
    · Olive oil
    · Apple Cider Vinegar
    · Dark Brown Sugar

    Before cooking:

    · IMPORTANT! If necessary, remove membrane from bone-side of ribs!

    · Brush with a light but thorough coating of mustard

    · Apply rub generously

    · Cover and let rub work in over night in refrigerator

    · Next morning, get smoker up to 230-250 degrees – sprinkle on a little more rub.

    During cooking (230-250 degrees MAX):

    · Brush or spray with mop (1/3 cup olive oil, 1 cup Dr. Pepper and 2/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce – mix well with hand blender before each use) every 45 minutes to an hour or so (this is also a good time to tend the fire, if needed).

    · Turn and rotate ribs around on grates as necessary if using horizontal smoker (optional but not necessary w/vertical water smoker).

    · Keep a thin, almost-blue smoke. Recommended woods: apple, cherry, maple (or a 1:1:1 combination of these three) – or hickory.

    · Cooking time can be anywhere from three to five hours depending on conditions.

    · When INTERNAL temperature of ribs is around 172 degrees and meat pulls away from bones a ways, they are ready for final stage.

    Final Stage:

    · Toward the end of cooking time for ribs, mix together in a small saucepan the ingredients for finishing glaze (1/3 cup mustard, 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar and 1/3 cup dark brown sugar) over low heat until completely dissolved and thoroughly blended. Cover and set aside.

    · Moments before ribs are ready to be pulled off, brush with glaze (both sides)

    · As soon as ribs are pulled off, brush with glaze again (both sides).

    BBQ sauce?

    · Ribs cooked this way shouldn’t need any, but it is always good to serve some on the side, for those who don’t know that! ;)
  9. Thanks for all the good ideas!!!!!!

    crazy i owe you an apology - i thought you were asking about pork spare ribs.

    for beef spare ribs, try the same method with a couple of small variations:

    for a rub, try durkee's kansas city steak seasoning. this is basically sea salt, cracked black pepper, granulated garlic and onion, and jsut a little bit of red pepper flakes. works very well.

    the same mop should work very well for beef (you might try substituting beer instead of dr. pepper, but dr. pepper works very well, but with the finishing glaze, try ketchup rather than mustard.

  12. Hay thanks I'll try both....
