Barbecue Spareribs
This is a good, basic method for making barbecue ribs. If you are just starting out, or looking for something simple, this recipe is the one for you.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 16 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6


  • 3 pounds pork spareribs
  • 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


Prepare ribs by removing the membrane from the underside of the ribs. Trim off any loose fat or meat. Prepare smoker or grill. You will want to hold a temperature around 225 degrees F. for 4 to 6 hours so plan accordingly. Season ribs with salt and pepper and place on grill or in smoker. Cook until the internal temperature of the meat reaches about 175 degrees F. Brush with barbecue sauce. After about 10 minutes turn the ribs over and brush barbecue sauce on the other side. Continue doing this until the ribs are richly coated in sauce and tender.

I was never quite sure how long to cook ribs on the grill before. I followed this recipe and my ribs came out juicy and were cooked just right. Wonderful!
