Preparation / Directions:
At room temperature rub down a slab of pork spare ribs with a thick mixture of 3/4 garlic salt, 1/4 sage and 1 Tbs. black pepper. Let 'em set at room temperature for 30 minutes. Then rub again with above mix and let stand for 30 minutes.
Place spare ribs on smoker, 190F, with meat side up for 1 hour then turn over for 1 hour. Give the ribs heavy white smoke. Take off smoker and seal in foil then place in oven. Turn oven on to bake and 300F. When oven reaches 300F turn temperature down to 200F for 2 1/2 hours. Do not open oven door during this time. Ribs are fallin' off the bone at this point, you could eat'em with no BBQ sauce.
Take ribs out of foil and return to smoker with the meat side down and spread with BBQ sauce, wait till BBQ sauce is sticky.
Turn over and spread on more BBQ sau
