Smoked BBQ Ribs

This is one of the simplest BBQ Rib recipes I have ever made. So fire up the grill and give them a try.



Patti’s Simple Smoked BBQ Ribs:

3 tablespoons dark brown sugar

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon dried minced onion

1 tablespoon cumin

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon cayenne use less if you want less heat

2 racks pork spare ribs, about 2 to 4 pounds each, trimmed of fat, membranes removed from underside( ask the butcher at the store to do this for you)

favorite  Barbecue Sauce, I used Baby Ray’s Sweet BBQ sauce if not using my own


In a bowl, make a dry rub by combining the sugar,  salt, garlic powder, minced onion cumin, paprika, black pepper, and cayenne, and mixing well. Rub the ribs evenly on both sides and wrap in plastic wrap. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.

Soak wood chips of choice in a bucket of water for 2 to 3 hours, then drain. Prepare a smoker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Remove the ribs and unwrap. Place on the grill of the smoker and cook for 1 1/2 hours, adding more of the coals as needed during the cooking time.

Remove the ribs from the grill and remove the smoker pan . Return the ribs to the grill and baste with the Barbecue Sauce. Cook, turning and basting once, until cooked through, 15 to 19 minutes. Remove from the grill and serve with additional sauce on the side.
