Just an FYI--I used a mandoline on its thinnest setting to slice my apples. 10 minutes at 275 (topped with some brown sugar), then let them rest on the counter for 20 minutes and they were ready to be ground. It's a nice option if you have the tool.




Matty,
Those look pretty good! The hardest part is getting the dry enough so they aren't soft, yours look like they would have dried nice.

I made a half batch of this today and it taste very good, can't wait to try it on some ribs. Thanks for posting!!!

FYI I just used a large holed cheese grater and held it over a cookie sheet coated with PAM and stuck in the oven at 200 for about 3 hours. They were still a little chewy when hot but once it cooled off they were crunchy and into the food processor they went.

This sounds good smoked with apple wood and basted with an apple juice sauce before the foil. Maybe even sprayed with apple juice during.... I will definately have to try this one out. THANKS!!!!

Here is an apple rub that is good on ribs and chicken.

Pigs Worst Nightmare AppleRub

6 Tbsp Ground Dried apple
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp Turbinado Sugar
3 Tbsp Coarse Salt
1 Tsp Sweet Paprika
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
Tsp Ground Black Pepper


Dried apple is not available in a lot of places so you can make your own by doing this.

Take 3 apples, slices them VERY thin. Spray or butter a cooking sheet. Place the thin apple slices on the tray and salt the apples slices, add brown sugar to the apple slices. To dry them ourt put them in the oven at 150 degrees for 2-3 hours. They will not become completely dried out and crunchy in the oven, after it appears they are drying you can take them out and let them rest. I usually let them sit over night and they are very crunchy in the morning ready to grind up.


For a relative noob, about how many racks of baby backs can you make with this amount of rub?

Depends on how much rub you apply but I would think you should get 8 to 10 racks from a batch if not more.

My brother, knowing that I am somewhat of a foodie and that I was going to buy a new gas grill, offered to buy me a Traeger. Until then, I never had heard of Traeger. When he took me to a dealer near his home, I was a bit skeptical. It didn't look as fancy as that 4-burner gas grill I had been looking at. But, the more I read about Traeger the more I like the grill. I have been a big indirect heat grill fan for years and have always wanted to get into smoking. Traeger offered me all that.

Anyway, I got the grill about a month a go and have been cooking on it about 75% of the time. Lamb chops, chicken, burgers, steak, country style steak, and fish have all come out just great. Last week I stumbled onto this site and found the following rub posted by Portergolf.

I was so impressed with the reviews, I bought 2 large baby back racks, made the rub using freeze dried apples obtained from the local health food market and threw the ribs and 2 quartered chickens onto the grill. I tried making the apple chips myself, but ended up with candied apple slices and big mess in the oven that my wife is unhappy about. I was concerned that I might have put too much rub on the ribs (I used the whole batch for the 2 racks). I mention ed this to my wife and she told not to change a thing I did.

My wife is not a big fan of ribs, or at least not until last night. They were fantastic! Because they were so good, it really boosted my confidence I can do this. Thanks to Porter golf for posting the rub recipe.

Oh, I have a leg of lamb on the barbie as I write.

You can buy ground apple powder from Nature's Flavors. I have used it to make this rub. It works great. Here is a link:

I just found this rub recipe and it looks like it would be great - I'm gonna try it soon. I have a thought I wanted feedback on.

What if I dried the apple slices in he smoker? I can set the temp real low and I would think the residual smoke might give the apples a nice flavor.

Any thoughts?

If you haven't already done it don't you will have nothing but a piece of black smokey apple. You will get much better flavor drying them in the oven.

Thanks for the link. that is a great idea. I think I will givethis a try. the time it takes to dry the apples can be a pain sometimes and this might be a great alternative.

Has anyone tried this rub on pork butts?
Would you use this rub on pulled pork?

I have FINALLY ordered some of the powder to use on ribs and I thought about using it on a butt also.

in the process of dehydrating the apples right now for this recipe. used granny smith, braeburn, and macintosh apples. did a test run on the grannys and man do they pop with flavor after theyre dehydrated. almost like sweet/sour candies. i pretreated them with a bit of lemon juice and had no issues with discoloration or anything.

Well, I tried this today and the flavor is really good. The problem came when I overcooked the damn ribs. They were really dry, therefore it was to embarrassing to post pictures. Embarassed

Thank you for posting this. Its very good. Will give it another shot next weekend.
