The 3-2-1 method of cooking pork spare ribs is something I have been looking forward to trying out. I decided to do it this weekend since I was feeding a group of people and had plenty of time to do it. This method calls for cooking at 225° for three hours, foiling the ribs for two hours, and then basting with sauce and cooking unfoiled for an additional hour totaling six hours. The "Backyard BBQ Sauce" recipe used in this video was provided courtesy of Kamado Joe... here's that recipe:

Backyard BBQ Sauce


2 cups ketchup
1 can beer (dark is best, but any beer will work)
8 oz tomato juice
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cup honey
4 tbsp brown sugar
1 onion (finely chopped)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 lemons (juiced)
2 tablespoons butter

Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the onions and sautee until translucent. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Continue heating on medium heat until the sauce just starts to boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30-45 minutes until the sauce thickens.

The Dry Rub recipe I used on these ribs is as follows:

1 cup coarsely ground sea salt
1 cup turbinado sugar
3/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup onion powder
1/4 cup garlic powder
1/3 cup ground black pepper
2 teaspoons dry mustard

This makes enough to fill a 1-quart mason jar... keeps a lot longer than you would need it to keep!
