In this video, I attempt to re-create, what the world famous Rendezvous restaurant, in Memphis, Tennessee, have been dishing out for eons of time! The only trick is making sure you have their rub, and bbq sauce, and then simply follow the recipe included in this video for the mop sauce, and simply watch, and do what I do in this video, for some of the best pork spare ribs you have ever eaten.


Spare rib rack 2 , membrane removed
Rub 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) ((Rendezvous))
Vegetable oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
For mopping sauce
Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
White vinegar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Rub 4 Tablespoon ((Rendezvous))
Bbq sauce 8 Tablespoon ((Rendezvous))



1. Preheat the grill dome to 225 F. 

2. Brush oil on the spare rib and then spread the rub all over.



3. Put maple wood for smoking. Place the ribs on the grill and let them cook for about an hour.

4. Meanwhile mix together water, white vinegar, rendezvous rub and rendezvous sauce in a pot. Heat the mopping sauce on a stove top so that everything is well combined.

5. Mop the sauce on the ribs and continue to cook for another 3 1/2 hours. Make sure to mop the sauce every one hour on the ribs.

6. Remove the ribs from the grill and place them on a tray. Wrap an aluminium foil around the ribs and let them rest for 30 minutes.



7. Slice and serve the ribs all by themselves or with a sauce of your choice.
