ParBoiling meats before grilling does make them tender though its frowned upon by real BBQ aficionados. Its a common practice for ribs in some parts of the country where they aren't cooked low and slow. Boil em for 30-45min then a quick trip to the grill over direct best while slathering in sauce. You won't get much smokey flavor but they're good....or at least as good as your sauce.

The OP Cooked sliced short ribs which aren't really suitable for low and slow smoking, however they're still from a tough piece of meat so parboiling marked them tender.

I know an old mexican guy who likes to boil beef ribs for a bit before he cooks em up. It makes me uncomfortable to see them cooked this way, but it works, it really does.

No matter how they were cooked they look good to me. I'm with Sapo though, I usually grill em.

Actually, boiling short ribs can make you a very wonderful beef stock.
