Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt (recommended: Lawry's)
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 rack baby back ribs, skinned
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup favorite BBQ sauce, or more to taste
  • 1/8 cup honey, or more to taste

Directions

Special equipment: Smoker

In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, seasoning salt, and pepper together. Rub brown sugar mixture on ribs, coating the entire rib, and place in a large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours (the longer, the better).

Prepare a smoker, using charcoal; heat to 225 to 250 degrees F. When the coals have burned to ash, add wood chips, preferably apple wood chips. Place ribs in smoker and cook for 3 hours at 225 to 250 degrees F. Using a spray bottle, spray ribs with apple juice every 45 minutes. After 3 hours, remove ribs from smoker, wrap in aluminum foil, and return to the smoker to cook for 2 more hours.

After 2 more hours, open foil and brush your favorite BBQ sauce and honey over the ribs. Leave foil open and then cook for 30 more minutes. Remove ribs from smoker. When cool enough to handle, cut ribs in half. Drizzle a little more honey over top and serve.
