Country Style spare ribs

I picked up some at the farmers market today and want to make them tonight. Want to have a cook time of 1 to 2 hours. Looking for ideas on dome temp, direct or indirect, internal temp to pull off, what type of smoking chips?

    Im thinking 350 to 400 for a two hour cook.

    I just put some on my large egg, 250 indirect for five hours.

    Not sure if im doing this correct or not, im a newbie egghead.

    I'm confused, maybe it is a regional distinction.

    Do you have spare ribs, or do you have country-style ribs? If country style, are they cut from the loin or from the shoulder?

    All these questions will make a difference in your recommended cooking method. For example, if you have spare ribs you will not get a decent product if trying to cook them in 1 to 2 hours. However, if you have country style ribs from the loin then you can easily do those in under 2 hours.

    I agree with Fidel, what do you have?

  • Country style ribs from the loin
  • indirect for sure, might want to cook a little bit longer.
