Grilling ribs - foil or no?

ziggylu | Jul 2, 200708:00 PM     16

I've got a couple racks of baby back ribs for Wed. Normally I cook them long and low in the oven and finish on the grill....way too hot in Phoenix right now to even think about turning the oven on.

Was planning to use indirect heat on the grill instead. Have seen methods to both wrap in foil and not to wrap in foil. Any opinion on one being better than the other?

Was planning to grill tomorrow and then heat and mop on Wed just before serving if that makes a difference(taking them somewhere else so don't want to do all the cooking that day).

Also if wrapping in foil is the way to go any point in using the smoker box with wood chips or will the smoke not penetrate the foiil?

Thanks!
