    Last minute decision to smoke ribs for this evening and don't have time to put rub on ribs.  Anyone have a quick flavorful idea?

    Confused, if you have time to rub your hand over the ribs, you have time to put on a rub.  I like a little of my pork rub and then brown sugar

    Like they said, just rub them now and they'll be fine. If you don't have any rub prepared, just toss one together. In a pinch a basic sugar/salt mixture will give you a little crust and seasoning. Add some chili powder, garlic and onion and some cayenne for heat and you're on the express bus to flavor town. ( to borrow a phrase from Guy Fieri)

    The most important thing is the temperature and time. A lot of people smoke ribs with NOTHING ADDED. Just meat and smoke. Get the texture right and they'll be great no matter what.

    Coat with EVOO, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Your good to go!
