BBQ Rib Ingredients:
Rack of Ribs
Your Favorite BBQ Sauce
1. Place ribs meat side up (or on their side if using a rack) in your smoker/grill. If your BBQ doesn’t have a water pan, it is suggested to place a pan of water or apple juice in with the ribs. Smoke for 3 hours at around 210-225 degrees. Regularly spray your ribs with apple juice to keep your ribs from drying out.Grill Users: During the first three hours, it is important to replenish your smoking tray with additional soaked smoking wood. Make sure to empty the spent wood chips first before replenishing.
2. After the first 3 hours, remove your ribs from the smoker/grill. Take a sheet of aluminum foil and spray it with apple juice and place pats of butter in a row down the middle of the foil (optional). Place the ribs on the foil meat side down and wrap tightly making sure there are no leaks. Place the ribs back in your smoker and cook for another 2 hours. Note: There is no need to smoke with wood at this point in that your ribs have already soaked up as much smoke as they can, as well as the fact that the ribs are wrapped and smoke will not be able to penetrate the foil.
3. Remove your wrapped ribs from the smoker, unwrap, and set back into the smoker meat side up. At this point you will want to glaze your ribs with your favorite BBQ sauce or marinade, both sides, and regularly flipping the ribs to make sure both sides are tacky and glazed. Do this for an additional hour or until the ribs are tender. Once the ribs are finished cooking, remove your ribs from your smoker/grill, wrap in foils and let rest for at least 10 minutes. Just like a great steak, this will allow the moisture to redistribute. Cut your ribs and serve!
