( I use gas, but i fyou are using charcoal, you may need to add more briquettes to the pile after an hour or so.
  • 6Carefully remove ribs from pan and place meat sides up on grill. Baste with reserved sauce (I keep a little for dipping as some like extra sauce); grill 15 minutes. Turn and baste; grill for additional 15 minutes.
