  3. Season both sides of your ribs with Heath Riles BBQ Sweet Rub
  4. Place on Drum Smoker and cook for 30 minutes, after 30 minutes spin your rack and cook for an additional 30 minutes. This is 1 hour of total cook time
  5. After your 1 hour of cook time is up, flip the ribs over and cook for 15 minutes face down
  6. Mix your Heath Riles BBQ Butter Bath, remember 3/4 cup of apple juice and 3 tablespoons of butter bath for EACH SLAB you are cooking
  7. Once your 15 minutes is up, remove ribs from smoker and wrap in butter bath
  8. Return wrapped ribs to smoker for approximately 45 minutes, or until an internal temperature of 206º-208º is reached
  9. Once ribs are off of smoker, allow them to rest for 30 minutes
  10. Glaze with Heath Riles BBQ Sweet Sauce and return to the smoker for 7-8 minutes to set the sauce
