    Found some full spares 1/2 price and trimmed up.I use a tablespoon with thin edges to scrape alot of the fat pockets down on the top of ribs.

    I like this rub on my ribs

    Paul Kirks Basic Kansas City Style RUB

    1 cup Cane Sugar............. ...2 tablespoons fine grind black pepper
    1/4 cup onion salt............. ...1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
    1/4 cup celery salt............... 1 teaspoon allspice(fresh toasted and ground)
    1/4 cup seasoned salt ...........1 teaspoon celery seed
    1/4 cup garlic salt................ 1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/2 cup paprika................... 1 teaspoon cayene
    2 tablespoons chili powder

    I use 1/3 cup of the salts.I used 2 tablespoons of my pure chimayo pepper for chile powder.I used 1 cup of my Paprika instead of 1/2 cup.1 teaspoon of my mirasol pepper instead of cayene.

    Ground up rub. First layer of flavor

    Ribs are slathered with peanut oil and rubbed 1 hour befor hitting smoker

    Onto smoker at 235.I spritzed with warm butter at 1.5 hour mark
    After 2.5 hours in red oak,cherry and pecan wood i foil.

    Second layer of flavor.Brown sugar,my neighbors Honey,some fermented pepper sauce and Onion flakes.

    Foiled meat side down for 45 minutes.The trimmed ribs only weighed 1.75 pounds each

    Unwrapped and cooked thirty more minutes

    Put Homemade sauce on and let cook 20 minutes more

    Third Layer of flavor-Sauce

    2 onions carmalized w/garlic
    1 quart homemade tomato squish
    Worchstshire sauce -to your liking
    Molases- to your liking
    Apple cider Vinegar(2-3 tablespoons or to taste)
    Tablespoon of the rib rub
    Apricot preserves at very end to the consistency you like
    Honey-to your liking

    Finished and sauced

    Served with Homemade Macaroni and Cheese with my garden roasted green chiles

    Smoke was 2.5-45 minutes foiled-30 minutes to tighten-20 minutes to set sauce=4hrs 5 minutes

    Tasty, if i say so myself....I like my ribs with a little tug.Not using any juice cuts the chance of mushy in my opinion.I will toothpick test thru top of foil and when i find the resistance i like i unfoil.....

    Oh man Alex, what a great post!
    Loved the 3 layers of flavor and I'm sure most things were your own garden grown seasonings.
    Care to share the mac-n-cheese recipe? Looked really good too.

    Killer ribs. Look and sound out of this world. I may give your procedure a try this weekend if I can get the time. The homemade mac and cheese sounds great too. So many people think of the fluorescent yellow Kraft goo, and don't know what a truly great dish homemade is, mmmmmm!
