One of our favorite wedding presents was a charcoal smoker that we got from my husband’s uncle. We had always admired his smoked salmon and turkey at Thanksgiving time and so when we got married he said he would get us one, and he did! My husband is getting pretty good at smoking things. The other day he decided to smoke some spareribs for the first time.
Grilling or smoking ribs isn’t as scary as it sounds. Really, the more you keep it simple, the more delicious your ribs turn out! Here is how we made ours:
- 4-5 pounds rack of Tyson Spareribs
- McCormick Sweet & Smoky Rub
- Kraft Mesquite Barbecue Sauce
- Hickory Chips
- Bottle of Beer (optional)
The actual smoking process takes about 5 hours at 200 degrees. We slathered on some of our barbecue sauce along the way to add some flavor. We used hickory smoking chips, but feel free to experiment with different types of woods.
