Some like it sweet, some like it spicy—we choose both.


  • 1 1/2 cups Schnucks apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 5–6 cups hickory or oak wood chips, soaked for 1 hour
  • 2 (2 lb.) slabs St. Louis-style pork ribs, membrane removed
  • Sweet and Spicy Dry Rub (see notes)
  • Schnucks barbecue sauce of choice, to serve


  1. For mop sauce, in a small saucepan combine vinegar, brown sugar and cayenne. Add 1/4 cup water and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Cook and stir over medium heat until just simmering and salt is dissolved. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare grill for indirect cooking. Place about 1 cup of the soaked wood chips directly on charcoal or in smoking box of gas grill. Cover ribs with spice rub.
  3. Place ribs, bone-side down, in center of grill or in rib rack, making sure they are not over direct flame. Cover and grill 2 - 2 1/2 hours or until meat is tender and has pulled back from ends of bones, replenishing wood chips in grill and gently brushing mop sauce over ribs every 30 minutes.
  4. Remove ribs from grill and let stand 10 minutes. Cut into portions and serve with barbecue sauce, if desired.
