So I have been thinking of a few ways to modify my rib recipe to change up the flavor a little. I usually do a modified 3-2-1 with two rubs, multiple ingredients in the foil, and then finishing rub. It works really well but want to try something different. Has anyone tried putting ribs in a steamer pot with apple juice, cider, beer etc in the pot and let them go for a few hours then into the smoker? Just trying to come up with different ideas. A local butcher here finished 2nd in ribs at Memphis in May a long time ago. He wanted to be different so he foiled his ribs the first 2 hours then smoked for 4. This evidently worked out well for him.
