Combine rub ingredients in a small bowl. Make sure ribs are thawed if frozen. Pat the dry rub evenly over ribs. Rub it in well. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or for up to 4 hours. Let ribs sit at room temp at for 30 minutes before putting them on grill. Put a smoke pack on grill and let it start smoking. Add ribs to grill with no heat under ribs. Use indirect heat to cook. Turn ribs every 30 minutes. Add more smoke packs when needed. Total cook time will be 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Personal Notes:
Smoke packs are easy to make. Just take whatever wood you are using to smoke with, Hickory, Apple, Mesquite. 2 parts dry to 1 part wet is what i usually use, put in aluminium foil and fold edges. Poke with a fork till you get some good holes on both sides of pack. Make 3 or 4 of them. Use high flame to get wood smoking then turn to low. Put smoke pack directly above flame. Put meat away from flame, indirect heat method. You want the low heat so ribs cook slow. You will taste the smoke flavor from the wood as you eat and it tastes good. I use a propane grill, it stays about 175 to 200 degrees inside grill. This recipe takes some time to cook but the ribs are really good. I have done this recipe several times and everyone loves these ribs.
