  3. Fill drip pan with apple juice, then place soaked apple or cherry wood chips in the smoking tray.
  4. Set your TEC Patio FR grill to low, place ribs on rack and close the lid.
  5. After 1 hour, flip ribs over so that both sides get exposure to the sweetness of the apple juice.

  7. At 1 hour and 30 minutes, flip ribs back to bone-side down, refill the drip pan with apple juice, and refill the wood chip tray if needed. Close the lid.
  8. At 3 hours, baste with your favorite BBQ sauce, close the lid, and let them cook for another 30 minutes.
  9. At 3 hours and 30 minutes, check the tenderness of the ribs. Do this by picking them up from one end with tongs. If they are tender enough to pull apart, they're done!
