    Basically, you cook them 3 hours indirect at 250 degrees. Then you foil the ribs and do them for another hour at 250. You can actually do them longer if you think they need to be more tender. There is also the 3-1.5-1 method which is 1.5 hours in the foil. Then you remove the foil and finish the ribs for an hour either direct or indirect (I do them indirect at 250) to firm up the meat and the outside layer. You may sauce them as you see fit once they are out of the foil. I do mine for about 1/2 hour at the very end. Good luck![p]TNW
