For the Apple-Whiskey Spritz:
- 1 part apple cider
- 1 part apple cider vinegar
- 1 part whiskey
Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS1500s Pellet Grill to 275ºF set up for smoking.
To make the Apple-Whiskey Spritz, combine all ingredients in a spray bottle and shake to mix.
Spray your St. Louis trimmed Creekstone Farms Duroc Spare Ribs with the Apple-Whiskey Spritz; just enough to form a thin layer for binding your seasoning to the meat.
Season with Cattleman’s Grill Lone Star Brisket Rub on all sides.
Transfer the ribs to the smoker, bone side down. Smoke for about 2 hours before beginning to spritz, then spritz the ribs every 45-60 minutes until the ribs are done.
The ribs are done cooking when the ends of the rack stay on the cooking rack when the rack is lifted 4” - 6” off the grate from the center of the rack, and the meat in the center of the rack begins to crack/break during the lifting process.
