BBQ Spare Ribs

After five hours on the smoker, these ribs are done because they broke apart when pulled off the rack.

Thanks but there's nothing left but bones. You can still bring dessert.

Thanks. They were tasty and plan to do another batch next month. That or I'll finally take on the brisket (that's a good 12-16 hours).

I need to find a good place to get ribs here in Melbourne. The problem here, is that they shave them so thin there's hardly any meat left on the racks, so you feel desperately cheated whenever having them. On top of that, they are bloody expensive here.

They really ought to understand why they are called spare ribs. Getting them here, they are usually about $18 per kg, and as I said, they are shaved so tight to the bone that I reckon 3/4 of the weight is the bone.

What smoker do you use? I don't actually have one but it's one of those 'must get at some point' things that I have been eyeing for years.

That's a shame about shaving the ribs. A man could get killed for doing that here in the south. :D

I use a Weber 18.5" Smokey Mountain. It's a great smoker, easy to use, and won't break the bank.

Certainly. And I frequently buy meat from the local butcher's, but as I mentioned above, the $18 or so per kilo is the price for the stuff that doesn't suit my personal requirements. If it's $18 for the stuff that's 60% bone (in a way, you could say I'm paying $18 for 400 or so grammes of meat), just imagine the eye-watering price for a better cut. My local butcher isn't going to slog me too hard like that, but when having ribs I want a feast — a proper fill, not something where I run short. I'm a Dane, we're known for our indulgence with pork. Not the David Cameron way, though.
