I have a confession. I had never cooked ribs before this and I was scared. I didn’t have the most thorough culinary school education and we never grilled. What I did learn, however, was that simple ingredients and less fuss equal lots of flavor. This recipe is simple and makes ribs in less than three hours with an electric smoker. If you have a traditional smoker I would suggest letting it cook on 200 for about 5 hours. If you want to just grill the meat, grill it low and slow for the most tender results.


4-5 pound slab of Tyson Pork Spare Ribs

McCormick Applewood Rub

Kraft Honey BBQ Sauce

1/4 C. Brown Sugar

1/4 C. Horseradish Mustard (Spicy Brown Mustard can be substituted)

Optional: Apple wood chips


1. Rinse your ribs and dry thoroughly. Apply rub liberally, cover, and refrigerate at least one hour.

2. Heat smoker to 300, add your chips. Put your ribs on rack, cover and leave it alone to cook for 2 hours.

3. Make your sauce, mix the bbq sauce with the mustard and brown sugar. Mmmm sweet and tangy!

4. After 2 hours, apply a nice big slathering of the BBQ sauce to the ribs, cover, and smoke an additional 30 minutes.

End result?
