Set up Big Green Egg for indirect cooking. Get smoker temp to around 275 degrees.

Stir in wood chips, set down Plate setter, the a foil tray filled about half way with water.

Finally put down the cooking grate then place ribs on top (meat side up). Or you can use a v-rack as well. Cook them for about rwo hours at 275 degrees then once the internal temp is around 165.

Prepare foil boat, add butter, sauce and more seasonings. Place ribs meat side down in the mixture. Wrap tight and place back on the smoker for one hour.

Remove from grill, take out of the foil, brush ribs with sauce and put back on the grill for about an one hour (meat side up). This will allow the sauce to set. If you pick them up with tongs on the end the rack should bend. Total cook time usually around 3 ½ – 4 hours.
