Set up your BBQ to run at 275 F with indirect heat. Pull the ribs out of refrigerator, and let come to room temperature. Score the back of the ribs, and remove the silver skin. Rub the ribs generously with the rub, get as much on as possible. When BBQ is ready, set the ribs on your BBQ for indirect heat. Cook them for 3 hours making sure that the fire stays constant. After 3 hours, pull ribs out of smoker and place on bed of aluminum foil. Rub the butter on the ribs, and a very light coating of sauce. Seal the foil. Place ribs back on smoker for 1 hour. After the hour, pull the ribs, and let rest for 20 minutes wrapped. Enjoy!
