Spare Ribs:

Warm Potato Salad:

  • 1 lb new potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, quartered
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar

Preparation

To make the ribs:  Season all sides of the ribs with Traeger Pork & Poultry rub.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 250 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place ribs directly on the grill grate meat side up or in the Traeger rib rack with the bones leaning against the rack. Cook for 3 hours.

After the first hour, spray the ribs with the apple juice. Spray every hour after that with apple juice.

After cooking for 3-4 hours, brush the ribs on all sides with Traeger 'Que BBQ sauce.

Return to the grill for 30 minutes to an hour to "tighten" the sauce.

For the potatoes salad: Toss potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper and place on a cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet directly on the grill grate and cook for 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Remove from the grill and place hot potatoes in a medium bowl. Drizzle with vinegar and toss with hard boiled eggs, sour cream, dill, parsley and green onions.

Slice rib rack into individual ribs and serve with a heaping scoop of warm potato salad. Enjoy!
