I do it slightly differently. I sear them at high heat for 5 minutes on each side, then I slow cook them for an hour or two at low heat turning them every 5 minutes. I do apply a dry rub, but I brush on a mixture of lemon juice, worcestershire and white vinegar every time I turn them. I cook them until they look done (takes about 70-90 minutes) and then I serve them with a couple of different sauces that I heat up and cook slowly with the ribs.
There is no one way to make ribs, but in my neighborhood it's a rite of passage for acceptance by the neighbors who've been there since Reconstruction making them their way and I'm getting better and better about how they're turning out....to the point that the old time neighbors are now coming over to participate in the grilling process and they're gradually convincing me to switch back to charcoal.
Speaking of that....if you use gas make sure you stop by the Home Depot or Ace Hardware and pick up a wood chip box that you soak prior to putting under the actual grill so that you get the smoke infusion into the meat.
Good meat doesn't have to have it, but it always tastes good.

If anyone ever tells you to boil your ribs, beat them with a baseball bat and walk away.
