Cook Time: 6 HRS
Remove the thin membrane on the back of the ribs.
Generously apply your choice of dry rub to both sides of the ribs. Let the ribs rest for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
Preheat your smoker to 225°F (107°C) and add your favorite pellets or wood chips. Place the ribs on the smoker, bone-side down, and smoke for 3 hours.
Remove the ribs from the smoker and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Before sealing the foil, add 1/4 cup of apple juice to the packet. Return the wrapped ribs to the smoker or oven at 225°F (107°C) for 2 hours.
Unwrap the ribs and discard the foil and any remaining liquid. Apply your favorite barbecue sauce to both sides of the ribs. For a smoky finish, return the ribs to the smoker or grill at 225°F (107°C) for 1 hour.
