Stage 1:  Smoke Ribs for 3 hours.

Stage 2:  Take the ribs off the grill. Wrap them in tin foil or parchment paper. Place the ribs back on the grill for 1 - 2 hours.

Stage 3:  Remove the ribs from the parchment paper and place them back on the grill to finish cooking. This is a great time to add sauce!! Take the ribs off the BBQ when you are happy with the look and feel. You should see the meat pulling back away from the bones. The ribs should feel tender.

Stage 4: Cut the ribs and serve warm!
