  • 2 racks of pork ribs (baby back or spare ribs) Dry Rub:
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tsp mustard powder Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste Instructions: Preparing the Ribs:
  1. Remove the Membrane: Place the ribs meat-side down and remove the thin membrane on the back of the ribs. Use a knife to loosen it and then peel it off.
  2. Apply the Dry Rub: In a bowl, mix all the dry rub ingredients. Generously coat both sides of the ribs with the rub, pressing it into the meat. Wrap the ribs in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results. Cooking the Ribs:
  3. Preheat Your Smoker or Grill: If using a smoker, preheat it to 225°F (107°C). If using a grill, set it up for indirect heat cooking.
  4. Smoke the Ribs: Place the ribs on the smoker or grill, bone side down. Cook for 3 hours, maintaining a temperature of 225°F.
  5. Wrap the Ribs: After 3 hours, remove the ribs and wrap them tightly in aluminum foil. Return the wrapped ribs to the smoker or grill and cook for another 2 hours.
  6. Unwrap and Sauce: After 2 hours, carefully unwrap the ribs and discard any accumulated juices. Brush the ribs with barbecue sauce and place them back on the smoker or grill, unwrapped, for 1 more hour. This allows the sauce to set and caramelize. Making the Barbecue Sauce:
  7. Combine Ingredients: While the ribs are cooking, combine all the barbecue sauce ingredients in a saucepan.
  8. Simmer: Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.


  1. Rest the Ribs: Once the ribs are done, let them rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
  2. Slice and Serve: Slice the ribs between the bones, serve with additional barbecue sauce on the side, and enjoy!

Feel free to adjust the spices in the rub and sauce to match your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious barbecue pork ribs!
