Question Cooking smoked pork spareribs

I have been given some ribs smoked with some kind of sauce. I have always cooked my ribs from raw using my own sauce. I don't know any other way. Are these ribs cooked and only need heating up or........?

Odds are if they're already smoked, they're already cooked too. Every restaurant in which I've worked we HAD to precook (smoke) the ribs. It isn't anything you can do on the fly.

You can reheat them in the oven, microwave or grill, depending on the time you allow yourself and the taste you're looking for.

Was that actually a sauce or a dry rub that was on the ribs?

I agree - is someone gave you some smoked ribs they are probably ready to eat. If they needed to be cooked further, the person who gave them to you would have told you.
