I am attempting to smoke some spare ribs tomorrow. I will be using mainly lump charcoal with a apple chunk every now and then. This is only the second time I have tried to prepare spare ribs. I have trimmed them down to "St Louis style and applied the rub. They are now sitting in the frig awaiting tomorrows slow and low heat. I used "Pig's Ass Rub" on one rack and the following rub on the other. 4 tbsp turbinado sugar 3 tbsp kosher salt 1 tsp sweet paprika 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp black pepper 1/4 chili powder 1/4 cumin dash of cinnimon I plan on starting these are noon (PT) tomorrow. The sauce is TBD, I might feel ambitious and make one from scratch (probably not though) BrentCzech I have no clue why this picture is posted upside down.
