Directions

1. Get your grill up to the temperature of approximately 275º.

2. Skin the membrane off of your baby back ribs and trim any excess fat.

3. Coat your ribs in mustard, or whichever binder you prefer, and coat both sides of your ribs in Heath Riles BBQ Sweet BBQ and Hot BBQ Rubs. Let it rest for 15 minutes.

4. Place the ribs on your grill unwrapped for 2 1/2 hours. Spritz your ribs once every hour. We used water to spritz, but you can use whatever you like. We also placed another block of wood on our charcoal every hour, as well.

5. Create your butter bath using Heath Riles BBQ Butter Bath and Wrap. It’s 3/4 of a cup of Apple Juice and 1/4 of Butter Bath and Wrap per slab of ribs. We had two slabs, so we used 1 1/2 cups of apple juice and 1/2 cup of butter bath. Shake in your mixer bottle.

6. Take your ribs off of the grill. Place ribs in double-wrapped aluminum foil meat side down, and pour 1/2 of your butter bath on each slab of rib. Place your ribs back on the grill for 1 hour, or until they reach an internal temperature of 204-208º.

7. Take your ribs off the grill and out of the foil. Glaze both sides of your ribs with Heath Riles BBQ Sweet BBQ Sauce and lightly dust the meat side of your ribs in Heath Riles BBQ Sweet BBQ Rub. It’s called “muddy style” – a Memphis BBQ staple. Place back on your grill for about 20 minutes to carmelize.
