Looks good. Dont cook them often but they seems hard to mess up. Keep the heat reasonable 250 or maybe medium on the dial. Have you drilled any holes in the firepan so the fire can breathe a bit? They peddle those things with a solid firepan these days. They have trouble making any heat. In an ideal world it needs a hole about the size of a quarter direct in the bottom. Thats how they used to come from the factory then some dumb yup burned down his wooden deck when a hot coal fell out of the hole. Everybody has to pay the price for stupidity huh? Also once you get the hole drilled be ready to give the pan a vigorous occasional shake with a pair of pliers to make the dead ashes fall on out..or that smothers the fire too. Keep us posted.

What are they saying should be wrapped in foil? The meat maybe? If so yes a person could do that to finish. Thinking a half inch hole in the bottom should work for air..or you could drill several smaller ones. Mine has been turned into a specialized high heat chicken blaster. The fire pan on it looks like a swiss cheese. Assuming you know that country style ribs aint really ribs? The ones we get are thick sliced boston butt. Now a person can occaionally find real country style ribs which are the boney point of a loin and kissing cousins to pork steak. Dont see those often but they are good too. You have sliced butt I think.

Would wait till later in the game to wrap..if a person is going to wrap. Wrapping from the start would not be good. A general strategy for pork spare ribs is what is called the 3-2-1 method. Which is 3 on the fire..2 in the foil usually with a little liquid..and an hour to rest in an insulated box (empty ice chest) then out of the foil and back on the fire for a final glaze. A person should be able to follow that general game plan on Country Style ribs too. The suggested times are general guides depending on the size of the racks etc. For the wrapping liquid a little apple cider or juice (Treetop brand) mixed with a little brown sugar works well. For a finishing glaze a good tomato based sauce spiked with a little honey or pure maple syrup works well. Check out this link and keep it handy. Very useful info on most bbq related topics.
