First Ribs: Slow Fire dry rub method

My husband and I are not big fans of most rib sauces and tend to order our ribs naked when we go out to eat.  

I just finished my first rack of spare ribs using the dry rub recipe from Slow Fire.  Total cooking time was about 3.5 hours (2 hours bone side down, 30 minutes meat side down, 1 hour wrapped in foil).  I am very pleased with the results (as is my husband).  I can think of a few modifications to try (season the night before, finish up with  few minutes of direct heat) but this rack will definitely not go to waste.  

suggestions for other dry rib recipes and/or processes are welcome.  

thanks all.

    That seems awfully short time for spare ribs.  What temp was the egg at for the cook?

    250 ish.

    I am very open to suggestions as I am itching to try another rack.

    Dry rub indirect 230 4.5 to 5 hours no foil. I'm going for the "competition" ribs. When you take a bite only the meat you bite comes clean from the bone the rest stays put!
