I needed beef ribs last weekend but my shop was out of beef backs.  

They had beef spare ribs so I decided to give it a shot.   I was happy with them -- they had a lot of flavor and a good amount of meat.

 I used this Rib Rub from Hilah Cooking
2 tablespoons black pepper 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon smoked paprika 
½ teaspoon dry mustard

I cooked them indirect at 250F for 2 hours:

Then I put them in a shallow pan with 1/2 of a beer, wrapped them in foil, and put them back on for 3 hours.

They were falling from the bone and delicious!

I threw together a barbecue sauce, but the ribs certainly didn't need it.

Sauté 1/4 cup chopped onion and 2 cloves of minced garlic in 1 Tbs butter.
Add 1/2 cup beer and bring to a simmer. 
Then add 1 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbs smoked paprika, 1 Tbs chili powder, and a dash of cayenne.
Simmer for 15 minutes until thickened. 
These measurements are approximate, so make sure you taste and add whatever you think it's missing. 
The ribs were so good, I had the leftovers for breakfast the next day! :)
