There are many right ways to prepare BBQ Ribs. In this tutorial we will look at several variations used to get the BBQ ribs you want. After all, the best pork BBQ rib is the one you like best. So if you enjoy them fall off the bone tender then make them that way. If you want a crisp, crunch surface then I will show you how to do that as well. You can put sauce on them or not or make your BBQ Ribs spicy hot, or sticky and sweet. It's all up to you and don't let anyone tell you that it isn't right.

What you will need for BBQ Ribs:

  • racks of ribs (I'm working with spareribs but you can use baby back ribs)
  • A good Rib Rub
  • Fuel for your smoker (like charcoal or whatever your smoker burns)
  • Wood Chunks
  • A reliable meat thermometer
  • Heavy duty aluminum foil (if you intend to wrap your ribs)
  • Barbecue Sauce if you intend to sauce your BBQ ribs
  • A large knife
