Default Needing help with Spare Ribs

I just picked up Spare Ribs ( not baby back Ribs ) I never cooked Spare Ribs before. I need help with on how to prepare them and how long to cook them. They will be cooked on the BGE. When I cook Baby Back Ribs I use the 2-2-1 method and with great results.
Thx in advance.

I've never cooked Spare Ribs but they can't be too far off from the others.
And I've never cooked on an egg type cooker.

I'd cook'em low-n-slow over indirect heat, with a water pan.
Maybe a spritz or baste after about 3-4 hours.
No crutch.
Pop, Bend and Crack test for doneness.

Following along here for Copy Cat Reasons... Never cooked ANY ribs, but always wanted to...For those of us that might not know any of the methods, What does "2-2-1" mean???

I would just do them the same way you have always done your baby backs and they will be fine. As someone mentioned above though, you could do 3-2-1. I always try and remove the membrane as well, but sometimes it's just more of a pain in the butt and there are conflicting "expert opinions" out there on the removal or not of the membrane.

Cut the country ribs off of them and remove the membrane and you can’t go wrong

I use the 3-2-1 method and my wife really likes them that way. Me personally though, I prefer not using the foil and just smoking them straight until they are done. But have to keep the wife happy.. LOL. She doesn't like some of the rubs I use so when I do them the 3-2-1 method, I put bar-b-que sauce on them after I take them out of the foil for the last hour. She says they are the best ribs she has ever had when I do it that way so I guess I am doing something right. I smoke mine on an electric smoker at 250, dont see why it would be any different on a BGE though.

If I were doing them just for myself though, I would skip the foil.
