2 racks baby back ribs, membranes removed
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Smoked paprika
1 cup apple cider, in a mister


Set the Big Green Egg for indirect cooking with a convEGGtor at 275°F, add soaked wood chips or chunks.

Season the ribs on both sides with salt, pepper and paprika. Arrange the ribs bone side down on the cooking grid. Spray with the cider after the first hour. Cook the ribs until they’re well-browned and tender enough to pull apart with your fingers, about 3 hours, spraying each hour with the cider. Brush the ribs on both sides with the barbecue sauce and continue cooking for 30 minutes. Serve immediately with the sauce on the side.
