  1. Prep ribs for smoker by removing membrane with a full knife or the back of a spoon. You can wiggle it in slowly and it will release. This isn’t the glamorous part of the cook, but it’s necessary.
  2. Trim where bone stops and cartilage starts. There is a clear groove to cut through and separate the extra meat. This prevents excessive gristle in the sandwich. You can cook this meat separately, it is not waste.
  3. Season on all sides with dry rub and allow to sit for at least 15 minutes until it forms a paste-like texture

  8. Drizzle Maine Maple Syrup along the rack

  10. Flip over after 2 hours, cut the top of the paper off, and fold edges up around all sides to create a paper boat
