I'm a little new to smoking pork ribs so I was kinda curious about a few things. I'm going to be using Gordon's Grub Rub as the dry rub. Anyone have any tips for when using this rub?

I'd sprinkle it on them and rub it in good, then wrap them in cling wrap and put in refrigerator for a few hours. Take out and let stand out while the pit is getting ready. Smoke for about 4 hr's or so.

Do yall recommend putting anything on them while cooking? Or just a dry rub?

I personally know one person on this board who could really give you some sage advice here, but after shadowing the competitive BBQ circuit locally for a few years, I think I can give you some tips.

You cooking spare ribs, or back ribs? I'd use a mixture of hickory or pecan and some fruitwood like cherry, Apple, or peach wood. Preferably wood that's been cut for at least 6 months and up to 2 years. Use a basting brush and lightly paint on some yellow mustard on the ribs, after you've removed the back membrane (use paper towels to get a good grip on the membrane...make it easier). Then, lightly sprinkle the ribs on all sides with your favorite rub. Smoke over indirect heat for 3 hours. Then, take ribs and wrap them in heavy duty aluminum foil, then put back on the smoker for another 2 hours. Then take the ribs out of the foil, and brush with your preferred BBQ sauce, and put ribs back on the smoker for another hour or so, until the meat has pulled away from the ends of the ribs.

Then eat!

Ditto on the hickory and pecan wood. Only way I smoke pork - it is delicious.

We cook spares. Preferably cut St Louis style. Pull back surface membrane. Leave thin membrane underneath. Wet with Lea & Perrins and use rub of your choice. We prefer Big Country BBQ "Simply Unique" (Yes shameless plug for our product)

Don't be stingy with rub. Roll up ribs and place in ziploc bag for 2 hrs. Remove from bag and light fire. Place ribs on smoker bone side down at 275 degrees for 3 hours. Spritz with some oil/fruit juice at 1.5 hours into smoke. We use pineapple/liquid butter mix. At the end of three hours, wrap in foil. Can add sugar now if ya want a sweet rib or more regular rub if want a savory rib. Check ribs 1.5 hours later for tenderness. Sometimes they will need another 30 minutes of so depending if you want fallin off the bone or not. When ready, remove from foil, add sauce glaze of your choice and put back on smoker for 20 or 30 minutes to set glaze. Can skip this step if want a dry rib.

Chow down and be prepared to be asked by all your neighbors to cook the block party from now on. Proven competition rib recipes.

One thing I find that makes them really pop is to sprinkle some of the leftover rub after you baste (I baste with a vinegar/mustard mop). I baste, sprinkle a couple times over the last 30 minutes to build up a nice layer of flavor. Once I started doing this I simply stopped using bbq sauce. Google Amazing Ribs website, great advice on that site!

I do 3-2-1 for spares, 2-2-1 for loin ribs. Always just right.

Want to outdo the others.
Forget foiling!! Retains too much steam and makes em mushy.
Use unwaxed butcher paper!
I started doing this with brisket, beef ribs, boston butts and pork ribs.
My smokings went to a whole new level...

Same here. Love the butcher paper wrap. Doesn't ruin the bark. I bought a 30" x 765' roll on Amazon Prime for $35. I didn't realize how much 765' was until I got it. I'm good for a while. laugh
