This recipe is not even close to how Applebees does there ribs. The Actual recipe goes like this. Mix 2 parts salt 1 part granulated garlic and 1 part ground black pepper. Season Ribs on both sides. What they do is put them on grill not to cook but to achieve color. Remove and stack tightly in roasting pan with rack. pour in 1 part liquid smoke (not smoke seasoning) with 2 parts water. They cover thiers with two layers on film wrap and one layer of foil. Then put them in steamer. Steam does get to them its the 210F temp it maintains. For four hours. they are cooled and wrapped individually. reheated on the grill and glazed with Cattlemans BBQ sauce.
