Spare Ribs on a Weber Kettle/ MOJO Style

Spare ribs on the Weber kettle grill is a simple technique to get BBQ ribs when you don't want to pull out the smoker. This recipe is as simple as it gets and will get you some "atta boys (or girls)" at your next backyard party. Use any grill you want for this recipe. Just set it up for indirect cooking. For indirect cooking, place lit charcoal on one side of grill and leave the other side open for ribs. I ran a couple chunks of cherry wood throughout the cook just for sweetness and color.


1) St. Louis cut spare ribs

2)Your favorite hot sauce or pepper sauce

3)AP Rub (Equal parts salt, pepper, garlic, and MOJO BBQ rub)

4)MOJO Rub

5)Vinegar Baste ( I used Wicker's Original)

Start by trimming your ribs down to fit your grill. Coat the ribs with hot sauce and apply rub. Place on a 300 degree grill with cherry chunk for 1 hour. After the first hour, baste with the vinegar sauce and add another chunk of cherry wood. Remove the ribs after 2 hours. Remove the membrane and sprinkle AP rub on the back.

On a large piece of aluminum foil, sprinkle hot sauce and vinegar basting sauce then place the ribs meat side down. Fold the foil tightly around the ribs and seal edges tightly. Place the ribs in the foil back onto the grill for an hour and a half. Remove and check for tenderness.

If you are happy with it...EAT IT!
