Leave the ribs unattended and without opening the grill cover for the first 30 minutes. If the ribs start to burn at the edges, stack them on top of one another in the very center of the grill and lower the heat slightly. Ten minutes before serving, brush the ribs with barbecue sauce, if using.
Remove the ribs from the grill and place them on a clean platter. Let them rest for 10 minutes before cutting into individual portions.
