What you will need to make this BBQ Pork Tenderloin recipe:

2 Racks of Pork Back Ribs
Your Favourite ribs rub (we used our Southern Country Rub)

1 cup Apple Juice
2 tbs brown sugar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

Brown sugar
Chipotle powder
BBQ Sauce


Step #1
First you are going to want to prepare the ribs by flipping them over meat side down so that you can remove the membrane that is on the back side. Use a butter knife to peel from the middle to each end or if you have some paper towel you can start and one end and gripping with the paper towel peal it off from end to end. Once this is done you are going to want to trim up any extra tabs of meat to make it look real nice. After your ribs are prepped you are going to place a liberal coating of some good rib rub on to all sides of the back ribs. When this is done you are going to let them sit for a minimum of 20 minutes up to 2 hours.

Step #2
Once your ribs are prepped and rubbed you are going to set up your grill for indirect cooking. You are going to want to also place a drip pan below where you are cooking the ribs and fill it up with some hot water to allow for some extra humidity while the ribs are cooking. Once your grill is set up for indirect cooking you are now ready to place the ribs on the grill and begin cooking at 250 degrees for 2 to 2.5 hours. But before you close the lid make sure to add in some hardwood so that the ribs get a real nice smokey flavour.

Step #3
Now that your ribs are cooking you are going to begin to prepare your mopping sauce. Combine your apple juice, apple cider vinegar and brown sugar together and allow the sugars to dissolve. We are going to place this mopping sauce on the ribs two times, first at 45 minutes and at 1.5 hours.

Step #4
When your ribs have a real nice mahogany color (between 2 to 2.5 hours of cooking) it is now time to take them off the grill and place them meat side down on foil. Feel free to add your favourite toppings/flavours into the pouch. We used butter, brown sugar and honey with some chipotle powder to give it a nice spice to balance the sweet.

Step 5
After 1.5 hours in the foil you can remove it from the pouch and place it back on the grill. You will then sauce it with some BBQ sauce and let it set by cooking it for an aditional 15-20 minutes.

Once all this has been done and the meat is starting to pull from the bones your ribs are done. Take them off the grill and let them rest for 5-7 minutes before your cut them up and begin to feast!

That’s it, Enjoy!
