    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 lbs pork spareribs (2 full slabs)
    • 3/4 cup dry rub seasonings, for barbecue (see recipe Dry Rub for Barbecue)
    • 2 cups wood chips
    • heavy-duty aluminum foil
    • brown paper bag
    • 2 cups barbecue sauce (optional)


    1. 1
      Rub both sides of the ribs with dry rub and let stand at room temperature for one hour. (For stronger flavor, wrap the rubbed ribs in a double layer of plastic and refrigerate for up to one day.).
    2. 2
      Soak the wood chips for 15 minutes in a bowl of water to cover.
    3. 3
      Place wood chips in a foil tray on top of primary burner.
    4. 4
      Turn all burners to high and preheat with lid down until chips are smoking heavily, about 20 minutes.
    5. 5
      Scrape the grate clean with a wire brush.
    6. 6
      Turn the primary burner down to medium and turn off the other burners.
    7. 7
      Position the ribs over the cool part of the grill.
    8. 8
      Barbecue, turning the ribs every 30 minutes until the meat starts to pull away from the bones and has a rosy glow on the exterior, 2 to 3 hours. The temperature inside the grill should be a constant 275 degrees.
    9. 9
      Remove the ribs from grill and completely wrap each slab in foil.
    10. 10
      Put the foil wrapped slabs in a brown paper bag and crimp the top to seal tightly.
    11. 11
      Allow to rest at room temperature for one hour.
    12. 12
      Unwrap and brush with sauce, if desired.
