Barbecued Spareribs

My husband is a meat cutter at a supermarket and likes to find new ways to smoke or barbecue meat. Several years ago, he discovered this recipe for BBQ spareribs covered in a rich barbecued sauce. It was an instant success with our family and friends. —Bette Brotzel, Billings, Montana
