How much apple juice in foil?

Ok, going to be trying my first baby back ribs on saturday. Ive done some looking around and i think im going to go with 2 hours in the smoker, 1 hour foiled with juice, and 1 more hour to firm up.... then add sauce..... something like that. lol


How much juice do i put in the foil for each rack of ribs?

I do the same. I don't foil that much, but I do spray ribs down when cooking direct.

Use 2-3 oz of apple juice and be sure to place the ribs meat side down in the foil.

Original details of this great recipe and how to use it can be found here:

Re: How much apple juice in foil?

Does any of this change when using a rib rack? I mean as far as cooking times
or anything? I hear if you use a rack that holds the ribs close together it will increase cooking time, but I saw a rack at lowes that will space the ribs about 2" from eachother. Is this ok? Are there negative effects from using a rack?

Just trying to save a little cooking space.

I'm still confused as to if I should foil or not. People seem to be 50/50 on this topic.

Re: How much apple juice in foil?

This time around only about 4. Also gotta fit on some baked potatoes and beans. But in the future probally going to try and squeze 12-15 racks on the uds for larger familly get together. Pretty much as much as I can fit on will go on in those situations.

Re: How much apple juice in foil?

If you chop em in half. You may be able to get that many (12-15) into a rack....Some laying against the side of the racks. You wanna keep them as close to the center as possible.

For 4 I'd ctill chop em in half and rack em.

Re: How much apple juice in foil?

I quit adding liquid to the foil. Just wrap them up and they will be fine and my personal opion is that 1 hour in foil is too long, I go no longer than 45 minutes and even that can be too long.
