  • Fire up your pellet grill, and preheat it to 180°-210°. I also like to add a dish with water in the smoker so the ribs don't dry out.
  • Start to rub the Paleo Cajun Seasoning and the Himalayan salt all over both sides of the ribs.
  • Place the ribs on the pellet grill for 3 hours.
  • Tear off a large piece of foil and lay it out. Pull the ribs from the grill and add it onto the foil. Add the butter and pour the apple cider vinegar over the top. Then cover the ribs with more foil, pinching the edges to seal it. Return the ribs to the grill for another 2 hours at 225°.
  • Remove the ribs from the grill, and completely uncover from the foil. Remove all the foil, and add the BBQ sauce to the top of the ribs. Return to the smoker for another hour, still at 225°.
  • After a total of 6 hours, these ribs will be the perfect temp for a delicious meal! Add your favorite sides to go with it, and your mouth will love you!


I have been trying to find a healthy alternative to aluminum foil for a recipe like this, but so far haven't had any luck. If you know of good alternatives, let me know in the comments below!
