Total time runs about 3-1/2 hours for baby backs. The apple juice gives them a wonderful caramel-y bark but doesn't add noticeable sweetness. And with no foil in the way it's really easy to tell when they're done to your liking. Mop 'em with some sauce for the last 20 minutes if you like. Way less putzy and messy. Give it a try sometime.
Looks delicious! Additionally the short ribs can be served alongside buttered noodles, mashed potatoes or creamy polenta with a spoonful of gravy on top.
