Ribs - Wet or Dry?

I'm thinking about fixing ribs on Sunday. It sucks for me because my roommates and everyone one else that's bound to come over likes a ton of BBQ sopped on. I think good meat should not have it's flavor hidden, so I like dry ribs with a good rub for seasoning.

How are you guys split? Am I a weirdo or am I the norm?

I prefer a good dry rub. Like you said - this lets the flavor of the meat shine through. If I want to add sauce when I eat them, usually only if they are lacking in flavor or are dry, I can. But, I have had some might good ribs that were mopped and wet.

I like them both. Do you have a good dry rib rub recipe? I've experimented with a few, always looking for new ones...You can always make them dry and then let them slop the BBQ sauce on theirs the last 5-10 minutes of grilling...

Talking time and effort

this all depends on if you want to spend time and effort personally wet ribs are the best. if you do dry you need to do a dry rub and smoke them in a charcoal grill for wet ribs (if you have one) soak them in a home made BBQ sauce again smoke them and you have to watch them and keep them lathered in sauce to gain all the flavor of the charcoal smoke chips and you very own sauce

Dry... I can't explain it but there is just something about all that flavor without the mess of BBQ. I will eat the wet ones though
