    While the ribs are cooking, prepare the brown sugar wrap. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, butter, and agave. Spread half of the mixture on each of two double layered sheets of aluminum foil, approximately the same size and shape of the racks of ribs.

    After 3 hours, remove the ribs from the grill and place each rack, meat-side down, on a foil pack. Wrap tightly. Increase the Traeger temperature to 250°F and place the wrapped ribs, meat-side down, on the grill. Insert the probe into the center of a rack of ribs, avoiding the bones. Close the lid and grill until the internal temperature reaches 204°F, about 1 1/2-2 hours.

    Remove ribs from the grill and foil packet. Place unwrapped ribs back in the grill for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from grill and sauce the meat and bone side with Traeger Sweet & Heat BBQ Sauce and cook for another 10 minutes. Slice ribs and serve. Enjoy!
