Their recipe for "Candy On A Bone" Apple Glazed Baby Back Ribs:

1 Rack baby back ribs
Brown sugar
BBQ rub of your choice
BBQ sauce of your choice
Apple jelly
Apple juice
Parkay squirt butter

Take the membrane off the back of the ribs. Rub down both sides of the ribs lightly with canola oil. Apply BBQ rub of your choice. Let the ribs sit in the rub for a couple of hours.

Place on the smoker at 225-250 degrees for 3 hrs. After 1 ½ hrs squirt butter over the ribs and spritz with apple juice to keep moist. Repeat every 30 mins.

After 3 hours take off smoker and wrap in two layers of heavy duty foil. Before closing the foil, spread on some apple jelly and sprinkle with brown sugar on ribs. Close foil and return to smoker for 1 hour.

Take off smoker and unwrap. Place ribs back on the smoker for 30 min and lightly glaze with your favorite BBQ sauce. If you want, you can mix some honey and apple juice into the sauce to sweeten it. This also makes it a little thinner and easier to glaze with.

After 30 min take off and allow to rest for 15 min. Cut the ribs and serve.
