Citrus Glazed Baby Back Ribs
  2.25 down loin back ribs
2 tsp
  kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp
  fresh cracked balck pepper
1 tsp
  granulated garlic
2 tbsp
2 tbsp
  light brown sugar
2 cups
  fresh orange juice
1 tsp
  lime zest
2 tsp
  fresh lime juice
1 tsp
  lemon zest
1 tbsp
  fresh mint, chopped fine
  chunks apple wood
1 1/2 cup
  apple juice
  spray bottle
  Preheat your American Barbecue Systems smoker to 225 degrees. While your smoker preheating, remove membrane from the backside of the loin back ribs. Then sprinkle both sides with salt, pepper and garlic. Let set for 15 minutes before placing on the smoker. Add 1 chunck of apple wood every 20 minutes for the first hour. Continue snoking for 3 3/4 hours. While the ribs are smoking start makeing your citrus glaze. In a medium sauce pan, stir together the cornstarch, brown sugar, orange juice and lime juice. Cook over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat, stir in mint, lime zest and zest peel. Glaze ribs durning the last 15 minutes. I like to reserve some of the glaze for a dipping sauce.
  Chef Notes:
  I like to spray my ribs with apple juice every 30 minutes durning the first 2 hours. This helps keep the ribs from drying out, till the fat starts rendering out. This starts happening about 1 1/2 hours into the cooking cycle.
Remember if the glaze starts to burn, you can always spray with apple juice. This will dilut the glaze and keep it from burning.
