Right over the dry rub.) and place on top of grill grates over indirect heat. Close cover and cook at least one hour, according to your heat level, or until ribs are tender.

- NOTE: If you don't care to buy a container of Fish Sauce but would like the flavor, simply make your own. It will not be the fermented type nor taste exactly like it, but it is simply delicious in its' own right. This will make much more than you need, so keep refrigerated until you need it again.....which will not be too long! Take 1(3.75 ounce)can sardines or mackerell, and drain well. Add to a food processor or blender with 1/2 cup light soy sauce and . Puree until as smooth as possible. Strain through a fine-meshed strainer and there you have it!
