  • Remove Ribs from package and dry off. Be sure to remove the membrane from the back of the ribs if this is still present.
  • Apply olive oil to the back of the ribs and rub in.
  • Season with Heath Riles BBQ Pecan Rub on the back side of the ribs.
  • Season with Heath Riles BBQ Honey Rub on the back side of the ribs.
  • Repeat steps 2 thru 4 on the front side of the ribs.
  • Allow ribs to sweat while you get your cooker up to temperature (275º-300º). We cooked these ribs on the Deep South Mailbox using Royal Oak Charcoal and Blue Note Bourbon Wood Chips.
  • Before putting ribs on, add your wood chips if you desire.
  • Place ribs on the grill or smoker of your choice and allow them to cook for approximately an hour and a half.
  • After cooking for an hour and a half, remove ribs to wrap.
  • Wrap ribs with Heath Riles BBQ Butter Bath & Wrap. You will need to mix 3 tablespoons of Butter Bath to 3/4 cup of Apple Juice PER SLAB OF RIBS. Add this mixture into the foil and wrap tightly.
  • Place wrapped ribs back on the smoker for approximately 45 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 207º-210º. Once temperature is reached, remove from the smoker.
  • Allow ribs to rest for 20 minutes while still wrapped.
  • Mix ingredients for sauce above over medium heat and allow them to merry.
  • Once your ribs are rested, brush both sides with sauce and return to the grill / smoker for 10-15 minutes.
  • Once sauce is set, remove from the smoker and ENJOY!
