    I was trying to mix the flavors of the Carolinas and of the southwest. I trimmed the ribs St. Louis style, So here’s how it went down.

    Mixture:
    1 cup apple juice
    ½ cup apple cider vinegar
    ¼ cup EVOO
    2 tablespoons powdered honey
    Bagged ribs in zip locks and put bags in a bowl.

    Let them sit in the fridge overnight. Rinsed and dried them, then I gave them a good rub down with my Chimayo Mild dry rub. Set the temp 225*-235* using apple wood. Let them smoke for 5 hours straight w/out foil just to test the moisture level when removed from smoker. I think the half racks may have smoked a little quicker than a whole rack usually would. The ribs just started to dry out a little, so I may resort to foiling next time around. The meat was tender and the bones pulled right out but I will use a little more rub next time. Notice the nice way the meat pulled from the bone. Oh well, always another rack...
