    used the rub on spare ribs and they came out delicious, rubbed the ribs with mustard first added rub and wrapped in foil the night before, and smoked them in our electric smoker the next day - amazing!!

    I love the rub but don't have a grill to complete the cooking so they didn't turn out as well as they could have. How could I have finished them?
