• 3 pounds of ribs (can be side/back/St Louis)
• 1 tablespoon of salt
• 1 tablespoon of pepper
• 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
• 1 bottle apple cider (or two cups of apple juice)
• 1 cup brown sugar
• 2 cups BBQ Sauce of your choice (check out “Danica’s Rib Sauce Recipe”
• Remove “silver skin from back of ribs”
• Wash ribs thoroughly and pat dry with a towel
• Combine salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl to create the “rub”
• Sprinkle this mixture generously on both sides of the ribs and “massage” into the meat.
• Place ribs in smoker with the bone side down leaving space between each of the racks of ribs
• Smoke on low heat (225 degrees) for 3 hours
• Remove ribs from smoker and place each rack on a sheet of heavy-duty tin foil
• Pour about a ¼ cup of apple cider over each rack of ribs
• Sprinkle brown sugar over the top of the ribs
• Tightly wrap each rack of ribs in tin foil and place back onto the smoker grill at low heat for another two hours (you do not need to add any more wood chips during this two-hour period just keep your temperature even
• After two hours remove ribs from tin foil, allow moisture on ribs to evaporate. Return ribs to the
grill and turn up the smoke and temperature to 300 degrees.
• Baste with BBQ sauce turning occasionally until a crispy glaze has caramelized on the ribs.
• Remove from grill and allow ribs to rest for 5 minutes, then slice apart and enjoy with your
favorite side dish and beverage
