Make a wet sauce out of the vegetable oil, water, tomato paste, remaining brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, and molasses.

Prepare a grill my heating the coals medium-hot. Place the ribs on the grill and cook, covered for 3-4 hours, making sure to turn the meat every 30 minutes or so. Brush the wet sauce over the ribs throughout the cooking process to ensure the ribs are moist and tender.
