Directions

  1. Prepare charcoal in a smoker, and bring the temperature to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).
  2. Cut the ribs into smaller portions of 3 or 4 ribs, and place them in a large pot. Pour in enough apple juice to cover. Place a lid on the pot and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, and let stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Lightly oil the grate in your smoker. Place ribs on the grate, and throw a few cloves of garlic onto the hot coals. Close the smoker. Maintain the temperature at 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) by adding more charcoal as needed. Smoke the ribs for 7 hours, adding more garlic cloves to the coals occasionally.
  4. Make a sauce by mixing together the barbeque sauce with 2 cups of the apple juice from the pot. Season with granulated garlic. Baste ribs with this sauce while continuing to cook for another 30 minutes.

I was a little cautious because the recipe is so easy, but this was fantastic! Note: I have a gas smoker, and I really can't get the temp lower than 250. The ribs reached the fully cooked internal temperature just over 4 hours. I basted as directed, and in 30 minutes we had a winner.

This is mostly my mistake in that I didn't notice they were to be cooked on a smoker. However, I have to make the comment because someone out there like me may make the same mistake. In order for this to be as good as previously reviewed...you need a smoker! The grill, wood chips, etc. just will not do it justice. My advice, if you don't have a smoker stay away from this recipe but if you do have one, I wish I could be invited to your next bbq because I'm sure it's a lot better than mine turned out! :o)

Excellent! We finished the last 30 min. in a 350 degree oven wrapped in foil with the bbq sauce. This eliminates all that bbq sauce clean up in the smoker.
