Let's get grilling

1 Combine the first 11 ingredients in a large bowl and blend well. Place the ribs in a large resealable bag and add the sauce. Seal the bag while remove any excess air. Refrigerate overnight (8–12 hours).
2 Prepare smoker or grill for indirect cooking, adding 3–4 of your favorite wood chunks to the charcoal briquets. Adjust smoker or grill vents to bring the temperature to approximately 250°F. Remove the ribs from the bag and pat dry with paper towels. Place on the smoker or grill, cover and allow them to cook until tender, approximately 3 hours. Remove from heat and serve.
