These aren't your average ribs on the block. These spares are seasoned with our savory Traeger rub, slow cooked with melted butter, caramelized brown sugar and finished with a little Texas heat for savory, sweet, and spice in a bite.

Ingredients

  • 3 racks St Louis style ribs, trimmed and membrane removed
  • 4 tbsp traeger rub
  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 racks St Louis style ribs, trimmed and membrane removed
  • 4 tbsp traeger rub
  • 6 Tbsp butter

Preparation

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.

Season ribs with Traeger Rub and place directly on grill grate rib side down or in a Traeger rib rack with the bone resting on the rack. Cook for 3 hours.

Stack 2 pieces of tin foil on the table large enough to cover one rack of ribs. In the center of the foil place 3 tablespoons butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup agave. Place the rib rack meat side down on top of the brown sugar mixture and wrap tightly. Repeat with remaining 2 racks. 

Place all ribs directly on the grill grate meat side down and cook an additional 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until internal temperature reaches 203 degrees F.

Remove ribs from the grill and cover each rack with 1/2 cup Texas Spicy BBQ sauce. Rewrap and return to grill an additional 10 minutes allowing sauce to thicken.

Remove ribs from the grill, slice and enjoy!
