Cajun Spiced Barbecue Ribs

Prep Time:24 Hours
Cook Time:6 Hours

Nutritional Information

These ribs use a spiced liquid that can be used to braise or baste the ribs with as they cook.


  • 6 tablespoons paprika
  • 6 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons white sugar
  • 6 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 6 teaspoons onion powder
  • 6 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 4 teaspoons cumin
  • 4 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground white pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 3 (12 oz) can beer, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 6 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons liquid crab boil
  • 4 tablespoons Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 4 racks spare ribs


  • 1. To make the rub, in a small bowl, mix together paprika, salt, sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, oregano, cumin, black pepper, white pepper, and cayenne pepper. Set aside. To make the liquid seasoning, in a medium bowl, whisk together beer, butter, Worcestershire sauce, liquid crab boil, and Louisiana-style hot sauce. Set aside. Remove membrane from back of each rack of ribs and trim meat of excess fat. Season ribs liberally with rub all over. Preheat EGG to 225°F, adding chunks of smoking wood when at temperature. When wood is ignited and producing smoke, place ribs in the grill, meat side up. Smoke until ribs darken to a deep rusty red color, about 3 hours. Lay each rack of ribs on top of a sheet of extra-large heavy duty aluminum foil; tilt foil edges upward. Pour half of liquid seasoning over each rack of ribs, then seal ribs in foil and place back on EGG for 1 hour. Open one end of foil and pour liquid seasoning into a small bowl and reserve. Remove ribs from foil and place back in the grill and continue to cook until ribs have a slight bend when lifted from one end, 1-2 hours more. Remove ribs from smoker, brush with reserved liquid seasoning. Serve immediately.
