Bring spare ribs to room temperature. Be sure the membrane on the backside of the ribs is removed.
For the dry rub, mix brown and white sugar, paprika, salt, pepper and onion powder together in a small bowl.
Rub the mixture over both sides of the ribs and let marinate while the grill is being prepared.
Preheat grill to 275 degrees using the indirect method. Use charcoal briquettes and water-soaked hickory chips for the flame side.
Wrap the ribs in foil, and place meat-side down on the side of the grill away from the flame, close cover and cook for a total of 3 hours or until the meat is moist but falls away from the bone. Add more water-soaked hickory chips every 45 minutes.
After 2 1/2 hours, remove the foil from the ribs and turn the ribs over on the grill and cook for another 30 minutes. During the last 15 minutes, carefully flip ribs on grill meat-side up, and slather the Peach Rum BBQ sauce over the top and let brown on top.
