Stir in the apple and continue to saute until most of the moisture has evaporated, about another 3 minutes. Carefully stir in the bourbon and simmer for another 5 minutes, finally stir in the prepared BBQ sauce and simmer for another 5 minutes. If not using the sauce right away, cover and refrigerate. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, cover wood chips with water and let soak for at least 30 minutes, then drain well. With a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil, form a packet and place wood chips in the middle. Seal packet and pierce all over with a small knife. Set aside. Preheat the grill to 350 degrees. Add wood chip packet, cover, and wait until the chips start to smoke (normally 5-10 minutes). Meanwhile, prepare the spice rub; in a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, and ginger. Rub the spice mixture over the surface of the ribs and rest for at least 5 minutes. Place the ribs on the grill and close the cover. Grill meat, turning occasionally, until they are cooked through and lightly charred, about 2 1/2 hours. Use meat brush to coat the ribs with reserved barbecue sauce on both sides and cook until glazed, about 5 minutes. Transfer ribs to a platter and serve with remaining sauce.
