Pour your charcoal evenly onto the grill (Preferably Royal Oak), squeeze the lighter fluid evenly over the charcoal and let soak for 2 minutes.
Light the grill and wait 20 or more minutes until the coals turn white
Once the charcoal turns white, place any wood chips of your choice over the coals and close the grill for 10 minutes. (Make sure your grill vents are completely open).
Before you place your ribs on the grill. Make sure you do not see any visible fire flaming. If you do, close your grill for another 3 minutes.
Place your ribs onto the grill around 275 to 325 degrees and close the grill.
