Ribs on the WSM

I smoked 4 slabs of pork spares WSM International Smoke Day. I used salt, fresh ground black pepper, sugar, granulated garlic, onion powder, and paprika in the rub. For smoke, I used pecan chunks and also oak and hickory chips.

I let it go for 3.5 hours, then pulled them, foiled them, and put them in a cooler for one more hour. I think this was one of my better batches as far as flavor and texture.

The next day, I added in a little celery seed into the rub, but used just pecan chunks with the mesquite charcoal, and only cooked ’em for 3 hrs before foiling in the cooler. Getting better, I think, but still a ways to go from Williams‘ perfection.

I made a video talking about tips for making barbecue spareribs on YouTube

Aloha, Nate
