Remove the membrane from the rack of ribs using a butter knife and paper towel, Place the ribs face down on a large piece of aluminum foil.  Slather the ribs on all sides with yellow mustard then generously coat with dry rub.  With bone side down, make a packet with the foil.  Leaving one end open, carefully add the apple juice and seal closed.  Place in oven on a sheet pan for 1 ½ hours.


Set the oven to broil.  Remove pan from oven and open the packet carefully.  Pour off the liquid into a small bowl and mix with BBQ sauce and honey.  Generously brush onto the ribs and place under broiler for a few minutes to glaze them.  This can also be done on a grill to finish them.
