Ok, i'm slow cooking some ribs today! Here's what I've done so far.. pulled the membrane off the ribs, light olive oil and rib rub. In the Weber I've placed a 9 x 13 foil pan with apple juice/ water mixture on top of the flavor bars, and put some water apple juice smoked wine barrel chunks in the smoker box wedge. They have been cooking for about 45 minutes at ~280-300 degrees. I'm guessing they will take 3 hours? Any help or tips you can offer would be appreciated. I'll try to attach some pics.

Forget time, probe/tear test your meat for doneness. Backs or spares?

300 seems a little high to me but I use a smoker. 250 is where I do all my smoking. 4 hours on smoke, then back on for another 2 hours sauced up a little wrapped in foil to break them down so they fall off the bone. Then I sauce them up big time and carmalize them on a hot grill for a few minutes.

But to each their own. Everyone has their own way of doing it.

I've smoked ribs as high as 275. You using the gauge on your gasser or do you got a probe reading from where your meat is? I'm assuming you're doing these indirect.

Besides the high heat I think everything seems about right. I'd back the heat off quite a bit.

HA! Ribs were incredibly tender, fell off the bone perfectly, but the rub I used was a bit salty! Should have made my own.

All in all good ribs though!

Since its Seattle maybe you get some slack for not smoking.
