    Insert the probe into the middle of a rack of ribs, avoiding the bones. Arrange the ribs directly on the grill grates, bone-side down, close the lid, and cook until the internal temperature reaches 203°F, 3-4 hours. Add the apple juice to a spray bottle and spritz the ribs after 1 hour of cooking and every hour thereafter.
