How to make it

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar, chili powder, paprika, black pepper, 2 tablespoons garlic powder, 2 teaspoons onion powder, kosher salt, cumin, cinnamon, jalapeno seasoning, and cayenne pepper.
  • Rub generously onto the pork spareribs.
  • Cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  • Prepare an outdoor grill for indirect heat, or preheat a smoker to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  • While the grill heats up, prepare the mop sauce.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the apple cider, apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon onion powder, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, lemon juice, jalapeno, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper.
  • When the coals are gray and ashed over, place 2 handfuls of soaked woodchips directly on them.
  • Place the ribs on the grill grate bone side down.
  • Cover, and cook for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
  • Add more coals as needed. Baste with the mop sauce, and throw handfuls of soaked woodchips onto the coals every hour.
  • Keep the temperature of the grill or smoker from going below 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).
  • Ribs are done when the rub has created a wonderful crispy blackened 'bark', and the meat has pulled away from the bone. Discard any leftover mop sauce.
