Smoked Spareribs

I smoked some sparerib slabs for the house full of company I had not long ago...

To make the ribs even tastier, first I brushed them with bacon drippings...




then sprinkled them with Harley's dry rub and put them in my horizontal wood burner with a bit of hickory.



After I reached a desired pullback (the meat pulls back from the bone) I slathered the ribs with some Billy Sims Q sauce...



They were tasty! :)

Haha... Chez! :)
I served some other goodies with the ribs.. smoked chicken, bacon wrapped corn, abts. I had a pile of smoked meats with side dishes of meat. lol
Bacon drippings rate right up there with chocolate for me. :)
Thanks Chez!

Thanks Rick! I didn't time them but I'd guess they smoked for around 5 hours. I just watch for the pull back. :)
