Sprinkle rub liberally on ribs. Allow to stand 20 to 30 minutes at room temperature until rub appears wet.
RIB SMOKING DIRECTIONS: Prepare smoker for long, slow cooking using hickory chips for flavor. Cook ribs, bone side down at 230F for 2 hours using indirect heat. Turn and cook 1 more hour. During last 15 minutes, baste with BBQ sauce diluted by 1/2 with water. Serve ribs with warm undiluted sauce on the side.
BBQ SAUCE DIRECTIONS: Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1-1/2 hours, stirring every 10 minutes or so. Pour into sterilized jars, seal and let stand for 2 to 6 weeks before using.
My notes: We just used this recipe just for the sauce. The sauce was just about perfect, a tad on the hot side (before resting 2-6 weeks, we'll see) so I added several tablespoons of honey. I used it on St. Louis Style spare ribs (trimmed) that I seasoned with Memphis Hogaholics rub. Then I smoked the ribs using the 3-2-1 method (3 hours naked - 2 hours wrapped in foil - 1 hour naked and basted w/ this sauce) at 250 degrees F. Wife and sons said they were the best I've made....and I've made a lot!

pm9468Sauce was very tasty1y ago
Jennelson1984I use the dry rub on my ribs every time I make them now. I don't have a smoker though, so I cook them on the BBQ for one hour on low after heating up the BBQ on high heat. I then finish the ribs by putting BBQ sauce on the ribs and cooking for 5mins. Very good!1y ago
