5 – 6 lbs. of beef or pork ribs (I usually smoke pork ribs)
Trim ribs of excess fat
Remove yourself or have butcher remove skin from back side of ribs
Use fork to puncture meat between the ribs
Spray ribs with cooking spray (Pam, etc.) or brush with yellow mustard (I prefer using the mustard as it has ingredients that help tenderize)
Heavily apply your favorite rub and let your ribs set for one hour or longer…..even overnight, in fridge.
Place ribs in smoker for 6 to 8 hours at 180 to 200 degrees.
Spray hourly with apple juice
Place ribs in tin foil immediately out of smoker
Finish your ribs on grill and paint on BBQ sauce before serving.
