  1. Soak 2 cups hickory wood chips in water for an hour or so.
  2. Prepare the grill for indirect cooking, and position a drip pan under the grate. Drop a handful of soaked hickory over coals when ready to barbeque.
  3. Brush grate lightly with oil. Position ribs on grill directly above the drip pan. Cover with onions. Close the lid, and cook for 1/2 hour.
