    With everyone's help my first baby back ribs smoke came out AMAZING! Here's the low down:

    I picked up 4 racks, about 3 to 4lbs each. The day before I peeled the membrane and seasoned top and bottom with these seasonings:

    1/8 cup salt
    1/4 cup white sugar
    3 TBSP packed dark brown sugar
    1 TBSP ground black pepper
    2 TBSP onion powder
    1 TBSP garlic powder
    1 TBSP chili powder
    1 TBSP smoked paprika
    1/2 TBSP cumin

    Seasoned well and placed them in a foil pan covered for about 24 hours.

    The next day I fired up the smoker, heating to 225. I placed pure concentrated apple juice in the water pan, and apple wood chips in the tray.
    Smoked them for 3 hours, pulled them and placed them meat side down on butter, brown sugar and some of my seasoning, and poured more apple juice concentrate on the bone, about 1/2 cup. Wrapped in foil and smoked an additional hour. When they finished I pulled them, mopped with sweet baby rays and threw them on a piping hot grill for about 5 minutes then brought them in and served! They were amazing and everyone raved about them. I was even told they were Gordon Ramsey approved

    Thanks! I was kind of bummed because one of the foil packets came open and I didn't notice, and it dried them out. Other than that, they were superb!

    Way to go!!! Great looking ribs!!! Yes, I too have had the leak in a foil pouch many times. I now double wrap with heavy duty foil.
