Steps

  • 1

    Pat the ribs dry with paper towels and peel the membrane from the back of each rack.

  • 2

    Apply an even coat of Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub to the front, back and sides of the ribs. Let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes, or refrigerate for up to 4 hours.

  • 3

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 225℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke, if available.

    225 ˚F / 107 ˚C

    Insert the probe into the center of a rack of ribs, avoiding the bones. Place the ribs, bone-side down, directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and smoke until the internal temperature reaches 201°F, about 4 1/2 hours. Add the apple juice to a spray bottle and spritz the ribs after 1 hour of cooking and every 45 minutes thereafter.
