  6. Gently brush each rib rack with melted butter and wrap tightly in the aluminum foil.

  7. Return the ribs to the smoker and cook for an additional 2 hours at 225°F.

  8. After the two hours of cooking the ribs in the foil, remove the rib racks from the aluminum foil and place them back into the smoker.
