Cannibal Bone Ribs

4 slabs Baby Back Ribs

1/2 cup Apple Juice

1/2 cup White Grape Juice

Honey, as needed

Traeger BBQ Sauce

Rib Rub

2/3 cup Brown Sugar

1/2 cup Paprika

1/3 cup Garlic Powder

2 Tbsp. Onion Powder

2 Tbsp. Chili Powder

1 Tbsp. Cayenne Pepper

1 Tbsp. Ground Black Pepper

1 Tbsp. Ground White Pepper

1-1/2 tsp. Dried Oregano

1-1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin


Combine all rub ingredients in mixing bowl; mix well. Sprinkle both sides of ribs liberally with rub.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until a fire is established (4-5 minutes). Turn temperature to 275 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place ribs on grill; close lid and cook for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the apple and grape juices in a small bowl and set aside.

Remove the ribs from the grill and place them bone side down on a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil or a large disposable foil pan. Pour the juice mixture over the ribs. Drizzle a generous amount of honey over each slab. Wrap up the ribs completely with the foil and seal the edges.

Return the ribs to the grill and cook for 1 hour.

Remove the ribs from the foil and place directly on the grill grate. Turn the heat up to 350 degrees F and cook for 30 additional minutes.

Slather the ribs with your favorite Traeger BBQ Sauce and cook for an additional 5 minutes to set the sauce.

Remove the ribs to a cutting board. Slice into single serving-size pieces and serve. Enjoy!
