Makes 6 servings

For the ribs

For the spritz

  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup apple juice

For the wrap

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (cut in to 8 equal pieces)
  • 4 tablespoons honey

For the glaze

The process

-Pre-heat the smoker to 250 degrees F (we like to use Applewood)

-Trim any excess fat off the ribs and remove the membrane from the bone side of the ribs using a paper towel

-Pat the ribs dry with a paper towel and then coat both sides with the mustard, 1 tablespoon per side

-Apply Fire for Effect on both sides, 1 tablespoon per side

-Let rest in the refrigerator at least 1 hour before cooking or the night before 

-When ready to cook, place ribs on the smoker meat side up. Smoke for 3 hours

-Make the spritz. After 90 minutes, spay ribs every 20-30 minutes

-After the 3rd hour

  • Lay out 2 long strips of aluminum foil
  • Place ribs on the foil bone side down
  • Distribute 2 tablespoons of butter (4 pieces) evenly over the top of each rack
  • Drizzle 2 tablespoons of honey evenly over the meat side
  • Squirt with the spritz, then wrap ribs tightly
  • Place back on the smoker meat side down for 2 more hours

-After 2 more hours

  • Gently remove ribs from the foil - meat should be tender and the bones pulling back
  • Use a silicone brush to apply Pogey Bait to the bone side, then flip and apply sauce to the  meat side
  • Place meat side up on the smoker for 1 more hour

-After 1 more hour

  • Remove from heat
  • Lightly glaze with more sauce
  • Slice and Serve!
