Short ribs question

I'm gonna cook some beef short ribs tomorrow along with a rack of beef spare ribs. I've never cooked short ribs at all, so some advice would be greatly appreciated.

Should I braise them beforehand?
Will they take longer, shorter, or about the same amount of time as the spare ribs?
Whats the best way to tell when they're done?
What's a good temp to aim for?
Foil? not foil? foil after a couple hours?

On a side note I have some raspberry chipotle sauce...would that be good on the spare ribs in your opinion, or should I use it on pork ribs instead?

Thanks in advance!

    Still looking for advice from fellow Eggheads!

    There's still time...
  • Ive only ever braised so they were fall off the b I bone. the ladt recipe I looked at braised first tthn tossed them on a grill. but that was from people who finish butts and briskets and the like in the oven
  • THIS is how I do fall-off-the-bone spare ribs -- maybe that will help?
