Grilled spares for the wife

My wife doesn't like ribs smoked low & slow. So I've been spending the last 2 or 3 years trying to find a rib she likes. Thanks to Larry I've found it!!
After seeing Larry's post about grilled spares I though I'd give it a try and I'll tell you what they are great! Totally different taste and texture. I made some smoked bones today too but they were no where near as good as the grilled ones. I only cooked a half rack to see if she liked them.
I did add a little bit of rub (sugar burned a bit ) and sauced them after charring. 2 thumbs up from the wife!
Thanks buddy!!

They look great Puff. You have to watch out on fast cooks for grease fire's & flair ups

I'm pretty sure restaurants like maybe Applebees or Outback roast they baby backs in an oven, then slather sauce on em.

They may even Boil em 1st

When you go high heat just have to watch the sugar content of the rub

great report! how tender were they? I'm thinking they may have
a bit more of a grilled flavor, which I really prefer over smokey.

I probably could have pulled them off a little sooner. Pretty close to fallin' off the bone. I think I like the flavor of these better than smoked. When I cut into them juice was pouring out too.


Anyone ever cook them at a comp this way?

I have got to try this method this weekend. The Kettle, by far, is my favorite grill.
