I have a bunch of spareribs from a friend who raises excellent quality pastured-pork, and I'm looking for exceptional recipes to make with them. I don't have a smoker--I would do them in the oven or gas grill.

Haven't tried these yet but they sure sound good:
Although I haven't made these in years, since I am now a vegetarian, I submit to you my mother's recipe for spare ribs. Everyone used to Love these:
4-1/2 oz. Jar of strained peaches (baby food, or make your own)
1/3 c. Ketchup
1/3 c. vinegar
2 T. Soy sauce
1/2 c. Brown sugar
2 cloves minced garlic
2 t. Ground ginger, or use fresh minced
1 t. Salt
4 # spare ribs, separated
Mix sauce ingredients. Rub ribs with salt and pepper. Place meat side up in shallow foiled pan. Roast at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. (You can also boil the ribs instead, to reduce the fat.) Spoon off fat. Pour sauce over ribs. Continue at 350 for 1-1/2 hours or til done, basting with sauce from time to time.
We made this iRck Bayless rib recipe over the Labor Day weekend and thought it delicious. Calls for baby back ribs rather than spare ribs, though: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA...

My dad's go to marinade for awesome ribs and they couldn't be easier: equal parts brown sugar, brown mustard, bourbon and soy sauce. You good get all fancy-schmancy and toss some chopped scallions on there too if you wanted. Oh, and definately don't need top quality bourbon for this recipe - I have a bottle of Old Crow (shudder) in the back of the liquor cupboard just for this purpose!
