Traeger Sugar Lips Glaze Sauce

DIRECTIONS

1. Make the rub: In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cayenne, black pepper, white pepper, oregano, and cumin.

2. Make the ribs: Season both sides of each rack of ribs liberally with the rub.

3. When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 275℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

4. Place the ribs, bone-side down, directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and cook for 45 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, combine the apple and grape juices in a spouted liquid measuring cup.

6. Remove the ribs from the grill and place bone-side down on a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil or in a large disposable foil pan. Pour the juice mixture over the ribs.

7. Drizzle a generous amount of honey over each rack. Wrap the ribs tightly in the foil. Return the ribs to the grill, close the lid, and cook for 1 hour.

8. Unwrap the ribs from the foil and place directly on the grill grates. Increase the Traeger temperature to 350℉, close the lid, and cook the ribs for 30 minutes more.

9. Generously brush the ribs with Traeger BBQ Sauce, then cook for 5 minutes more, until the sauce has set. Transfer the ribs to a cutting board. Cut between the bones into individual ribs and serve. Enjoy!
