Foiling Liquid

  • ½ cup bourbon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 8 Tablespoons butter

Maple Bourbon Glaze


  • Preheat smoker to 225 degrees F.
  • Remover the membrane from the ribs and season on both sides with Hey Grill Hey Signature Sweet Rub.
  • Place ribs on smoker and smoke for 3 hours.
  • Lay out two sheets of 18-inch wide Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty foil side by side on a large work surface. Put 2 Tablespoons of butter on each sheet of foil. Sprinkle each with 1 Tablespoons of brown sugar.
  • Remove the ribs form the smoker, place them meat side down onto the butter and brown sugar. Fold up all 4 sides of the foil without crimping to create a bowl (this is going to hold in the foiling liquid).
  • Pour the maple syrup, bourbon and remaining butter onto the ribs.
  • Bring together the long sides of the foil, so the ends meet over the food. Fold the foil together and then roll until the foil is tight against the ribs. Double fold the two short ends to completely seal the ribs in the foil. Place them back on smoker for 2 more hours.
  • While your ribs are smoking, make the glaze. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 mins until the glaze reaches a syrupy consistency.
  • Remove the ribs from the foil. Return them to the smoker and baste them with the glaze. Close the lid and smoke for additional 30-60 minutes or until the sauce is set and ribs are tender.
