Get your ribs ready for smoking by removing the silverskin. Use your fingers or a butter knife to work under the edges and pull the membrane off the underside of the ribs. Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) and load your wood chips or pellets.
Apply a coating of olive oil and then coat the entire rib rack with dry rub.
Place the ribs with the bone side facing downward (the side that you removed the silverskin from) and smoke for 3 hours.
Remove the ribs from your smoker and set on large enough sheets of aluminum foil to wrap the ribs securely. Add the butter, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar to the ribs then wrap and seal. Return to your smoker and continue to smoke another 2 hours.
Remove the ribs from your smoker. Unwrap the ribs and coat with your favorite barbecue sauce. Return to the smoker and place the ribs bone side down. Smoke for an additional hour, or until an internal temperature of 202-205 degrees F (94-96 degrees C) has been reached. Use a digital meat thermometer to check your meat for doneness.
