I love spare ribs! This is a great recipe with amazing seasoning.You can BBQ then, oven cook, boil, grill - whatever you prefer!
Rinse the rib slabs in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Put the slabs on a chopping board. Using your fingers, pull off the thick white membrane. Use a small knife to trim off the excess fat and meat. Using a sharp knife, trim off the brisket bone (or rib tip). Season both sides of the slab with salt and some of the seasoning, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to a day in advance.
When you’re ready to cook the ribs, preheat the grill to 250 F, or light the BBQ!
Place the slab of ribs on the grill away from (not directly over) the flame (using indirect heat).
Cook the slab curl-side up for approximately 2 1/2 hours.
Flip the slab over to finish the cooking, about 1 more hour, or until you get the full "bend" in the slab.
For dry ribs, pull the ribs off the grill, and sprinkle more seasoning over the entire slab.
Cut between the bones and serve. For wet ribs, pull the ribs off the grill, and pour Neely's Barbecue Sauce over the slab. Slice between the bones into individual portions, and serve.
You can also cook them in the oven
I sometimes boil the ribs in beer for a while and then BBQ them....they turn out just fine and reduce the BBQ or grilling time by quite a bit!
