    I've never used a v rack, so I am not the most qualified to answer, but I would assume so.

    When I do ribs and foil them, afterwards I put them back on at the same temp as I have been doing the whole cook. Generally 250.

    Sauce is a personal choice. Some like it, some don't. I may or may not sauce them depending on the crowd I am feeding and how I am feeling that day.

    you can put them back on after the foil, trick is to get them tender and not falling apart in the foil which is the tricky part with foiling ribs. if not foiled long enough they need more time on the grill, if foiled too long, they fall apart, time is not consistant from cook to cook with foiling, you have to watch them

    Saucing and putting ribs vertical usually doesn't work out well. Think gravity.

    While the ribs are in the foil you want to lay them on the grid meaty side down...the point in foiling is that the meat is actually braising in the liquid..and I agree with long and they are falling apart, to short and they arent as tender..try 45 minutes your first time than back on the grill out of the foil to firm them back up some..
