I just put on some St. Louis style spares at 1:00. I am unable to  to fiddle with them for the next 5 hours. I am doing Dizzy Pig for the rub and keeping the dome temperature at 225. This is my first time not foiling them and saucing them. Please give some feedback.


  • This is the way I do them so I hope you like em.

    i Never foil but i do lightly brush with sauce and let it caramelize right at the finish

    Cen Tex,


    What sauce is your favorite?

  • Cen Tex,


    What sauce is your favorite?

    I use Salt Lick sauce on my ribs. it's unreal. it's not like any you've had- it's oil and vinegar based with no tomato sauce or mustard base. Crazy stuff.

    I have hard bone sucking sauce is the go-to around here and will try that next. Looks really good and it's more available in more areas than Salt lick. If you can't get Salt Lick where you live, you can get it online at

    Good folks and good rub and sauce. Don't get the spicy one. just get the original sauce and you'll be happy

    Eller I only do them without foil they turn out great. I make my own rub I've been doing it for years. And as Cen-Tex said sauce at the end. Post pixs if you can.

    I did a decent cook tonight I would like to share with everyone. St. Louis spares at 225 degrees for 5 hours. I used Kroger ribs coated with French's yellow mustard and Dizzy's Red Eye Express rub. I used  Famous Dave's Sweet and Zesty sauce for the last 15 minutes. My wife and mother gave me two thumbs on this cook.

    Eggcelent.  Where are the veggies? 

    I have some sort of beef ribs that have been in the freezer for 7 months since we bought the XL (they were part of the package).  I am going to do something with them Friday.

    XLBGE X 2, LBGE, MBGE and lots of toys

    Sorry Doc. I didn't get a pic of the veggies. But foiled yellow onion, baby bella shrooms, yellow squash, with EVOO and SPG. Veggies were on for 30 minutes. looking forward to your post on the beef ribs this week.
