4 Tablespoon Your Favorite Rub
6 Tablespoon butter
1 1/2 Cup brown sugar

For the BBQ Sauce: When ready to cook, start the Z Grill according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Chop up tomatoes and garlic and add all ingredients to a cast iron pan. Mix to combine. Place the pan directly on the grill grate and cook for 45 to 60 minutes. Remove from grill grate and transfer to a blender. Puree until smooth. Reserve until ready to sauce ribs.
For the Ribs: Reduce grill temperature to 250 degrees F. Trim ribs and remove membrane. Season ribs with Z Grill Rub and place directly on grill grate rib side down or in a Z Grill rib rack with the bone resting on the rack. Cook for 3 hours.
Stack 2 pieces of tin foil on the table large enough to cover one rack of ribs. In the center of the foil place 3 Tbsp butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup agave.
Place the ribs meat side down on top of the brown sugar mixture and wrap tightly. Repeat with remaining 2 racks.
Place all ribs directly on the grill grate (no rack) meat side down and cook an additional 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until internal temperature reaches 203 degrees F.
Remove ribs from the grill and cover each rack with 1/2 cup Coconut Rum BBQ sauce. Rewrap and return to grill an additional 10 minutes to allow sauce to thicken.
Remove ribs from the grill and slice. Enjoy!
