Spanish Spareribs from the Grill
For this Spanish Spareribs recipe we will first thoroughly marinate the ribs in an Adobo - a Spanish marinade - and subsequently slowroast them for a couple of hours in a closed barbecue (like for example a Weber kettle grill).
For those who don't have a barbecue: Grilling in the oven is no problem at all!

We first marinated these spare ribs overnight in an Adobo Español, and have subsequently cooked them for about three hours by indirect grilling in a closed charcoal BBQ at a temperature of around 300F (150C). The red color of the ribs is caused by the smoke.
We have copied this manner of grilling from Hot Smoke BBQ, and can assure you it works great!
You don't have a BBQ? Relax... Grilling in an oven works fine as well!

Spanish Spare Ribs Preparation
If you fire your barbecue regularly this Spanish spare ribs recipe should not be difficult at all:
Remove the tough skin membrane from the inside of the rib slab, cut the spareribs from the slab so you end up with individual ribs, remove any excess fat and dangling pieces, if any;
Thoroughly mix the ingredients of the adobo and marinate the spareribs, one hour at least, a whole night is a lot better of course;
Prepare and fire your closed barbecue (check out "Juancho's Split Grill"), and try to create a temperature of around 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees centigrade) under the lid; Alternatively: Preheat your oven at 300F (150C);
Spanish spare ribs and baby back ribs on the grill...
Grill the spare ribs in between two to four hours until they are done (low and slow is better than hot and fast...), turn the ribs around every hour or so;
Serve as a tapa!
