  • Meanwhile, make the sauce. Whisk together all ingredients in bowl.

  • Heat charcoal or gas grill for indirect cooking at 250 degrees F.

  • Place the ribs, meaty side up, over a drip pan and cook for 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 hours until very tender, basting with barbecue sauce every hour. Add about 12 coals to a charcoal grill every 45 minutes or so to maintain the heat.

  • Serve ribs with remaining barbecue sauce.
