smoked bbq ribs


  • 2 Rack St. Louis-style ribs

  • 1/4 Cup Your Favorite Big Game Rub

  • 1 Cup apple juice

  • Your Favorite BBQ Sauce



Pat ribs dry and peel the membrane from the back of the ribs.


Apply an even coat of rub to the front, back and sides of the ribs. Let sit for 20 minutes and up to 4 hours if refrigerated.


When ready to cook, set Z Grill temperature to 225℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Pellet Tube if available.


Place ribs, bone side down on grill. Put apple juice in a spray bottle and spray the ribs after 1 hour of cooking. Spray every 45 minutes thereafter.


After 4-1/2 hours, check the internal temperature of ribs. Ribs are done when internal temperature reaches 201℉. If not, check back in another 30 minutes.


Once ribs are done, brush a light layer of your favorite Z Grill BBQ Sauce on the front and back of the ribs. Let the sauce set for 10 minutes. After the sauce has set, take ribs off the grill and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice ribs in between the bones and serve with extra sauce. Enjoy!
