    14. 14
      The Smoking process will take 6 hours.
    15. 15
      Using a chimney charcoal starter get 15 briquetts red hot. Place coals on one end of the grill and place 1 pound of green hickory around coals. Using water-soaked hickory chunks if you can't get fresh cut hickory.
    16. 16
      Keep internal temperature of grill at 200-225°F Add more charcoal and hickory chunks every hour as needed.
    17. 17
      Place ribs bone side down but not directly over hot coals.
    18. 18
      After 3 hours, remove ribs from grill and wrap in aluminum foil.
    19. 19
      Hold in covered grill at 180-200°F for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until fork tender.

      Next build a real hot bed of coals over the entire bottom of grill.

      Place ribs back on grill to add char flavor.
    22. 22
      When meat becomes bubbly it its done.

      Make sure to char off the bone side membrane until it becomes paper-y and disintegrates.
    24. 24
      Slather with BBQ sauce. let heat caramelize sauce.
    25. 25
      This caramelizing along with the charring and slow cooking is the secret to tender smokey ribs just like the Championship pitmasters used to do down in the Deep South.
    26. 26
      There are no short cuts to this time-honored way of barbecuing. Dave.
