- Rack of ribs
- Memphis spice rub
- Barbecue sauce
- Apple juice
- Hickory wood chips
- Aluminum foil
First, you will need to soak your wood chips so they create the maximum amount of steam on the grill. Instead of just soaking them in water, try soaking them in apple juice to help give your ribs more depth of flavor. We used a mixture of apple juice and water and soaked the wood chips for 30 minutes.
Next, you’ll want to remove the membrane from the backside of your rack of ribs. Slide a dinner knife in between the membrane and bone to loosen it, then pull the membrane all the way off. This allows the spice rub to penetrate into the meat more fully.
Lastly, you will have to create your smoke packets. Take your soaked wood chips and place them inside a large square of aluminum foil. Fold up the corners into a packet shape, then poke some holes in the packets to let the steam escape.
The key to cooking great ribs is to do them low and slow. You will want to keep your grill set to around 225 degrees, and you want indirect heat on the ribs, while maintaining direct heat on the smoke packets.
So you can have an incredibly tasty rack of ribs for less than the national cost of renters insurance. If you had to pick one or the other, which would you choose?
