Select quality ribs based on your preference: baby back ribs are leaner and cook faster, while spare ribs have more marbling for richer flavor.

Seasoning Techniques

Apply a generous amount of dry rub to both sides of the ribs. Let them sit for at least an hour at room temperature to allow the flavors to meld.

Smoking vs. Grilling

Decide whether to smoke or grill your ribs. Smoking imparts a deep, smoky flavor and requires lower temperatures (225-250°F), while grilling offers quicker cooking times at higher heat.

Applying BBQ Sauce

Apply your favorite BBQ sauce during the last 30 minutes of cooking. This prevents burning and allows the sauce to caramelize onto the ribs.
