    2. Remove ribs from the refrigerator and place the rack bone side up on a sheet of aluminum foil that is 2⅓ the length of the rack of ribs.
    3. Place lemon slices on top of rack of ribs and fold the foil over and seal three sides to create a pocket. Pour cherry beer in the foil pouch with ribs and seal the remaining end.
    4. Place the foil wrapped ribs on indirect heat of 325º grill, close lid and grill for 1½ hours.
    5. Remove foil pouch from the grill, and drain the liquid inside, remove foil and discard lemon slices.
    6. Place the ribs back on the grill, set at medium heat and apply Steph's Bourbon Whiskey Sauce. Turn over and repeat 2 or 3 times letting the sauce caramelize between turns.
    7. Remove ribs and slice between bones and serve. Enjoy.
