Barbecue is often referred to as a primal experience. And there’s nothing more primal than pork rib tips: short, meaty sections of rib that are attached to the spare ribs. Ask a butcher to cut off the rib tips for you; or buy 2 full spare ribs racks and use a cleaver to remove the tips.

You’ll need to soak 1 cup of hardwood chips in water for 1 hour.

Plan to prepare the ribs ahead of time. The rib tips need to rest in their spice rub for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
