5) sprinkle ribs with spiced alcohol, juice of 1 lemon and concentrated beef/chicken stock. add lemon halves into the packet and smear ribs with the 1 stick of softned butter.

6)seal ribs and add back to the grill to continue cooking for an additional 1.5 hours or until ribs are fall off the bone tender.

7) Remove ribs from packet and allow to rest. save rib drippings, seperating the oil from the broth. save the broth to add to the bbq butter sauce. Once ribs have rested 15 minutes, slice so that each serving has 2 ribs.

8) Spoon a few tablespoons of the oil from the ribs into a sautee pan along with a few tablespoons of butter. sautee ribs in the oil basting constantly until the exterior is crispy. remove from pan and immediately sprinkle ribs lightly with Keith lorren bbq rub and seasoned sea salt.  Do this to all the ribs.
