Salt Lick Pork Ribs
*NOTE: You will know the ribs are done when the meat has pulled away from the bone by ¼ inch. You can also use a fork to see if it moves around easily on the thick part of the ribs.


  • 1 bottle of your favorite barbecue dry rub
  • 1 bottle of your favorite barbecue basting sauce (one without tomatoes in it)
  • 1 rack of spare or baby back ribs


  1. Bring smoker to 250° F.
  2. Uniformly spread dry rub on front and back of ribs and place on smoker meat-side down.
  3. Close door, and cook for 1 hour.
  4. Baste ribs with barbecue sauce. Turn the ribs over, meat-side up, and baste again, giving great care to basting ends and caramelized areas.
  5. Cook for 2 more hours and check internal temperature.
  6. If the ribs have reached 160° F, remove. If not, cook for an additional 15 minutes and continue to check in 15-minute intervals until temperature reaches 160° F.
  7. Remove and place on wire cooling rack or sheet pan meat-side up to rest. Let rest at least 15 minutes before serving.
