Pork Ribs

Kroger had pork spare ribs on sale for $ .99 a pound yesderday and I had never cooked this kind of rib (only baby backs) so I gave it the old "Egg Try." I smathered them with French's mustard and dusted them heavily with some Fiesta Rib Rub before putting them in the frig overnight. Started the fire about 8:30 am today and let it climb to and stabilize at 225° before putting the ribs on indirect with a dry drip pan and some leftover pecan chunks from yesterday's cook. I forgot all about them until 11:30 am, and when I checked the Egg was holding its on at 250° so I let it be. About 1:30 pm my wife told me she had some hot Italian Sausage to put on the Egg. I thought to myself maybe the sausage flavor will do something for the ribs. I put them on and didn't check again until about 3:00 pm. The dome temperature was holding at about 260° and the ribs looked like something out of Better Homes and Kitchens. I tore off a piece and it was everybit as good as I figured it would be. Had a nice smokey pink color inside, bold flavor and so tender and juicy I just had to share some with my neighbor. Took 'em off about 4:00 pm. For $6.00 there is enough meat to feed four people for three days. Needless to say, I'm real proud of myself. [p]The sausage did add some flavor but not as much as I thought it would. Even so, the sausage was excellent as an appeteezer.[p]I think I have earned another Rum & Coke for the day. Just wanted to share another success story with you guys. [p]Like I said before, Life is good and get'n gooder. [p]Spring Chicken
