3Rinse and dry the ribs. Put them on a clean cutting board and pull off the thin fatty skins that line the underside of the ribs. Trim the ribs of all excess fat. Liberally season each side with the peach rub and wrap the ribs in plastic. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours so the flavor can permeate the meat.
4Fill a grill with the chips and briquettes and preheat them to 250 degrees F.
5Put the ribs, meatier side down, over indirect heat and cook for 3 hours with the grill cover down. Turn the slabs and cook until the ribs bend easily, about 1 hour.At this point remove them from the grill. Sprinkle the slabs with additional peach rub ans slice it into portions, Cut each slab into individual ribs and coat with some of Gina's Peach BBQ Sauce. Arrange on a serving platter and serve.
