Apricot Pork Spare Ribs cooked on the barbecue are a low-cost meal that is high on taste and can be varied by the use of rubs or marinades.
I like preparing this dish on the barbecue because I can present half a dozen or more different flavors. In this recipe I concentrate on apricot flavor. You can use your imagination and produce a different flavor to each pound of the 4 pounds of ribs used in the recipe. This way your guests taste buds are constantly challenged by subtle variation.
