Put wood chips on your fire side. Take a pieceof heavy duty aluminum foil, be sure to soak chips (we likehickory), wrap them up real good and poke some holes in the topof the foil and then put them on the fire or coals.

put the sauce on the ribs

Be careful not to burn them. When your ribs or

meat get bubbly, not burnt, flip them. Sauce the other side

until it bubbles. This should take 3 to 5 minutes total. Remove

from the grill and enjoy! When you are all done and cooled down,

take your tongs and discard your foil package of chips in a

metal container
