charcoal, and mound for indirect heat. To make salsa, chop grilled tomatoes
and chiles; discard stems and seeds. Place tomatoes and chiles and their
juices in a bowl. Stir in vinegar, cilantro, and garlic; season to taste

ribs, meat side up, on grill directly above drip pan (overlap ribs to fit

maintain an even heat. Cook, bastin occasionally with some of the
remaining salsa, until meat near bone is no longer pink; cut to test (1-1
1/2 hrs.) To serve, cut ribs into 2 to 3 rib portions; garnish with lime
slices , if desired. Pass remaining salsa, sour cream, and lime wedges at
table. To eat, top ribs with salsa, sour cream, and a squeeze of lime.
