Difficulty: Medium - experience needed
1 slab pork spare ribs, about 7 pounds (3 kilograms)
1/2 cup (60 grams) Barbecue Rub, divided
1/2 cup (120 milliliters) oil
1/2 cup (120 milliliters) water
1 cup (240 grams) Barbecue Sauce
First, fire up that grill! Sprinkle your ribs heavily on either side with the Classic Barbecue Rub. Then, when your grill is hot and your charcoal, if any, is well covered with ash, throw your ribs on the grill on the side away from the fire. Smoke 'em for a good 6 hours at 225°F (110°C). Put the oil and water in a small pan or bowl, and stir in 2 tablespoons of the Barbecue Rub. After your ribs have smoked for about 30-45 minutes, baste them every time you add fresh chips or chunks to the fire. Turn the ribs over every 60-90 minutes. Come the last 20 minutes of your cooking time, baste your ribs well with the Barbecue Sauce and put them directly over the fire for 10 minutes per side, to crisp them a little.
