Smoked Ribs with Honey & Brown Sugar Glaze

By Traeger Kitchen

These easy-to-make ribs start by smoking low and slow, then get wrapped in foil to cook to tender perfection. A quick brush of wonderfully sticky Traeger Honey and Brown Sugar Glaze at the end of cooking delivers a boost of sweet flavor and a gorgeous glossy finish.
