Bar B Q Ribs! Yummmmmm

I did it.  I finally put ribs on the grill and they came out just like I wanted them too!  I like my ribs a bit on the dry, chewy side.  Not like jerky or shoe leather, nope, I want them tender enough to come off the bone with a little effort, with no chewy, soggy fat to go through.  I finally perfected this tonight!  Wooo Hoo!  Here's how ya do it!

Heat your gas or charcoal grill up to 300 to 350 degrees.  Push all the charcoal to one side.  Place seasoned (I used the Paula Dean season my friend Kim gave me) ribs, meat side up, on the side with no charcoal.  Close grill.  Resist opening for 30 minutes. 
After 30 minutes, add 5 charcoal briquets to the charcoal, and turn meat over.  Close again for another 30 minutes.  Do not open the grill unless you think the ribs hopped over to the charcoal side and are now on fire!  After the 30 minutes if up, add more charcoal - another 5 to 10 briquets, and turn ribs again.  They should be getting nicely browned at this point and pulling away from the top of the bone.  Close lid and cook 30 more minutes. 
Now they have been cooking for 1 1/2 hours.  They should be juicy looking and just about done, depending on the size of the ribs.  If you want fall of the bone tender and juicy ribs, cook another 30 minutes over the indirect heat and mop with your favorite sauce for the last 5 or 10 minutes.  I did not however, so I pulled my ribs over to the charcoal.
Ahhhhhh, there is nothing like that sizzling sound!!!!!!  I cooked them, turning frequently, for 30 more minutes.  Hallelujah!!!!!  There was singing in my mouth as I looked at what I had done! 
They were perfect.
And I never once had to turn on the oven.  WAHOOO!
