Prepare smoker or grill for indirect cooking, adding 3–4 chunks of your favorite smoking wood to the charcoal briquets. Adjust the smoker or grill vents to bring the temperature to 250°F.

Combine salt, brown sugar, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, chipotle powder, ancho chile powder, cumin and cinnamon in a small bowl and blend well.

Cover and allow the ribs to smoke for approximately 4 hours until tender.
