    I purchased a rack of wild boar spare ribs , and wild boar St. Louis style ribs to smoke on Saturday, and am looking or any tips anyone may have regarding these cuts of meat.

    My plan was to marinate the ribs overnight in pineapple juice, and then the next morning apply yellow mustard, and a traditional dry rub I use on regular pork ribs. I plan on smoking the ribs like I do pork ribs using lump, and mesquite, and spraying the ribs with a mixture of apple juice, & olive oil every hour or so until done.

    posted these elesewher, but I should have some closure, and an easy link for future boar experiments. 4 hours @ 235

    marinated boar ribs

    finished rack of spares:


    decent smoke ring for a lean cut.


    I liked the taste, and probably would do the boar again. The spares were preferred over the St. Louis style, to lean.
