Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the grill to medium.

Combine the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, red pepper, mustard and salt in small bowl. Mix until well blended. Put each rib rack onto a large piece of heavy duty foil. Rub the seasoning mixture evenly onto both rib racks. Fold up the sides of the foil, and pour 1/4 cup of apple juice into each rib foil packet. Close the foil package, leaving room at the top for heat circulation. Grill the packets for 1 hour on medium heat.

Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup apple juice, the barbeque sauce, applesauce, cider vinegar, cinnamon and ginger in small bowl until well blended.

Remove the ribs from the foil packet. Return them to the grill and brush them with the barbecue sauce mixture until well coated and caramelized.

Remove the racks from the grill to a cutting board and cut into 2-rib sections. Arrange the ribs on a serving platter and serve. Enjoy!

Cook's Note

I use the shortcut of bottled barbecue sauce. Apple juice adds to the apple flavor of the rib sauce. It also creates steam inside the foil pack so the ribs don't dry out. If you don't have apple juice you can use orange or pineapple juice, stock/broth or just plain old water.
