    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    These ribs are wonderful for your next back yard barbecue. You can pre-cook these by removing them from the foil packets, place them on a platter, cover them and refrigerate until ready to complete grilling. (up to overnight).

      Wonderful!!! After much searching and experimenting, this is the #1 recipe we use and ultimately share! Quick and easy and always turns out. No need to preboil as the icecubes create enough steam to make them tender. Be sure to use back ribs and not side ribs and back ribs are much more tender.
