Ingredients:
  • 4 racks pork spare ribs
  • 1 cup soaked wood chips
Rib Rub Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
BBQ Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups ketchup
  • 3 cups hot water
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Trim away excess fat from ribs. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, salt, black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper and garlic powder. Rub spice mix all over the ribs. Place the ribs in two 10 x 15 inch roasting pans, piling two racks of ribs per pan. Cover, and refrigerate for 8 or more hours.

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Bake uncovered for 3-4 hours, or until the ribs are tender and nearly falling apart. For the barbeque sauce, take 4-5 tablespoons of drippings from the roasting pans and place in a skillet over medium heat. Cook onion in pan drippings until lightly browned. Stir in ketchup, and heat for 3 to 4 more minutes, stirring constantly. Next, mix in water and brown sugar, and season to taste with cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 hour, adding water if it gets too thick.

Preheat grill for low heat. When grill is ready, add the soaked wood chips to the coals or to the smoker box of a gas grill. Place ribs on the grill but do not overcrowd. Cook for 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Baste ribs with sauce during the last 10 minutes of grilling only.
