Anyone have any recommendations on grilling beef ribs? I'll probably be doing my usual seasoning of tons of garlic salt and nothing else (per my wife's requirements), but I've had trouble not making sticks of carbon in the past. Any tips?

My father in law swears by the indirect heat method, but when I tried that, I basically just ran through a ton of propane and had lukewarm, raw ribs. Then I carbonized them, having little patience.
