Cooking tender barbecue pork spare ribs is not rocket science, anyone can do it. We try to make it fool proof. Dry rub and "Slow and Low" cooking is the key.
We like using dry rub spice because you get a better direct taste of the meat. You don't need to use BBQ sauce to get a good tasting rib. If you just want to taste the the flavor of the meat, try dry rub.
Texas Brothers BBQ Dry Rub is a long held family recipe of chili powder, sugar, cumin, garlic, papin, and a fine blend of all natural spices and gluten-free that brings out the authentic taste of Texas-style barbecue. Unlike sauce, dry rub does not need the careful attention to prevent burning or caramelizing the meat.
To show how easy it is, we've made these How-To videos. We want to give you confidence in cooking BBQ and we hope that you will try our dry rub while doing it. Hope this helps.
If you have a small grill or live in an apartment complex that doesn’t allow smokers, we made these videos to cook ribs in those conditions.

Step 1 – The Rack of Ribs
To BBQ a quality pork spare ribs, one must use quality meat and a quality dry rub. There are very few dry rubs on the market and Texas Brother's BBQ dry rub's all natural ingredients provide just the right combination to turn a regular rack of ribs into a prize winner. Follow these 5 steps to make your next cookout a success. When selecting pork ribs for a barbecue, there are different cuts that you can purchase from your local grocery store and butcher. We use a 2 1/2 pound St. Louis cut pork spare rib.
Step 2 – Applying the Dry Rub Spice
Apply an even layer of dry rub to the spare rib. For contrast, we covered only half of this rack of ribs. Are your lips watering yet?
Step 3 – Before and After Dry Rub Spice
Apply dry rub to the meat side of the rib only. The underside of the rib has a film that seals in the moisture. This his how the rib should look like with a layer of barbeque dry rub.
Step 4 – The Cooking Process
This rib has been on for 45 minutes at a temperature range of 270-300 degrees. When using an open grill, you might want to wrap the spare ribs right now for tenderness. This will reduce the amount of caramelization. Keep the ribs on the grill for another hour and a half. The full time for cooking is 2 1/2 to 3 hours depending on your cooker.
Step 5 – Final Thoughts
There you have it, the finished product. Get your appetites ready and sharpen your knives because you are about to remove the ribs from the cooker. When slicing your ribs, let the knife follow the rib bone to achieve a quality cut. Hungry? Order a bottle or two of our dry rub.
