Quick rib saucing question

Decided to make wet ribs today just to do something different from my normal ribs. Temp is 250 grate indirect.

Question, how long before the end do I start saucing?  And do you recommend multiple coats?  If so any particular intervals for applying?  I figure the sugar won't burn badly at 250 degrees, but don't want to deal with any burning just in case.

Thanks in advance,

    i let them go about 20 to 30 minutes after sauce. i just use 1 coat. i like the sauce to cook on the ribs a little, but not burn.

    Alright thanks for the quick response, so 20-30 at 250 should be good?  That will be the plan.  Doing 1 rack with Sweet Baby Rays sweet and spicy, one with a Carolina mustard based sauce.
