Recipe type: Main
Serves: 11-13 bones
- Full racks of spareribs
- Your favorite rub

- Buy full racks of spareribs.
- You can pull the membrane off the back if you want. But if you're too lazy, don't worry about it. For a competition, you definitely have to pull it off.
- Apply your favorite rub. Don't use a rub with too much sugar in it as it will tend to burn easier.
- Smoke on your smoker using indirect heat at 250 deg F for 5 hours. During this time, all you need to do is keep your smoker temperature at 250 deg. Be sure to measure your pit temperature at the grate where your meat is. Use whatever wood flavor you like, but fruitwoods like apple and cherry are good with ribs.
- If your smoker has a hotter side or if all the heat comes from below, you may want to flip and rotate your BBQ ribs once after 2.5 hours. But other than that, keep your lid closed to keep in the heat. Don't even open the lid to spray with apple juice or anything like that.
- After 5 hours, brush on some sauce front and back and set the glaze for another 15-30 minutes in the smoker.
- Slice between the bones and Eat em up!
