Preheat the smoker to 250 degrees F. We recommend you use hardwood for this, such as hickory or apple wood.
Begin by trimming your ribs. Remove the thin flap and membrane on the back of the ribs, the large segment of bones on top of the ribs, and the tail end of the ribs.
Coat the ribs in the seasonings. Rub both seasonings, and then the black pepper, into the meat. Ensure all sides are covered.
Place the ribs directly on your smoker and let them cook for at least 4 hours before you open the lid and start checking on your ribs. Try not to peek, as this will reduce the temperature and throw off cooking times.
Once your ribs reach an internal temperature of 200-205 degrees F (they should be tender when you bend them), remove your ribs to a cutting board.
Leave the ribs to rest on your cutting board for at least 15-20 minutes. Slice and serve.
