Labor Day BBQ 2017 Ribs are washed and in the sink This is going to be a running account of my barbecue experience right now it's 10:34 a.m. in the morning and I just starting to put the rub on the four slabs of ribs. These are pork spare ribs that I got at Sam's Club Terry Cloth towels are great for absorbing moisture off of spareribs. I remove the water moisture from the ribs with commercial towels that I got from Sam's Club. Spareribs with the dry rub. Once the ribs are dry I apply the dry rub. Sylvia made a spicy rub from scratch for one slab and I used Mikes Country Store Rub for the other three slabs. I wrap the ribs in tin foil until the smoker is fired up and ready for meat. The smoker is ready with a temperature of about 233 degrees This is my 250R from Bubba Grills. You can read more about the Bubba Grills smoker by searching for the name on the Internet. I am really happy with my smoker. Putting the ribs on the top rack The meat is finally on the grill at 12:30 PM. dinner is scheduled for 5 PM. I am only using about one-third of my top rack for these four slabs of spareribs. Come and get it Finally, I can serve the ribs along with other side dishes at the dinner party at 5 PM.
