    Trim the ribs and peel away membrane from the back of ribs by using a butter knife to loosen the membrane over a center rib, then gripping with a paper towel and tearing away. Season both sides evenly with Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub, then let sit for 20 minutes at room temperature or up to 4 hours in the refrigerator.
