  • Get Gateway Drum going, we used Royal Oak Charcoal and chunks of Cherry Wood to get to 300º
  • Make sure to pull membrane off of the back of your ribs
  • Season both sides of your ribs with Heath Riles BBQ Sweet Rub
  • Place on Drum Smoker and cook for 30 minutes, after 30 minutes spin your rack and cook for an additional 30 minutes. This is 1 hour of total cook time
  • After your 1 hour of cook time is up, flip the ribs over and cook for 15 minutes face down
  • Mix your Heath Riles BBQ Butter Bath, remember 3/4 cup of apple juice and 3 tablespoons of butter bath for EACH SLAB you are cooking
  • Once your 15 minutes is up, remove ribs from smoker and wrap in butter bath
  • Return wrapped ribs to smoker for approximately 45 minutes, or until an internal temperature of 206º-208º is reached
  • Once ribs are off of smoker, allow them to rest for 30 minutes
  • Glaze with Heath Riles BBQ Sweet Sauce and return to the smoker for 7-8 minutes to set the sauce
