Start your smoker with either hickory wood or chips and heat up to 260 degrees F.
Lightly sprinkle the meat side of the ribs with the rub. Place the ribs in the smoker with the bone side down and smoke until the meat responds to your touch like a pillow and the internal temperature reaches 195 to 200 degrees F, 5 to 6 hours at 260 degrees F (longer if smoking at a lower temperature).
