Default to gas or not to gas...

Need some advice here...Im up in VA with the in-laws who only have a gas grill. My mother in-law presented me this morning with 5 racks of ribs to be cooked tonight. Short of me driving into town and buying a Weber I need some advice on cooking these bad boys...and yes I did think about digging a trench and cooking them over wood coals but is pouring down raining...she wanted to put them in the oven...I started packing

Ive never cooked ribs on a gasser as a matter of fact I gave my gasser away like 7 years ago but this is what I'm thinking...since I wont be able to smoke them I'm up to any suggestions

-going to cut the racks in half to fit them all on one side of the grill..
-dry rub now
-around 2:30 light the grill and cook to set the rub
-cook them a bit and then foil with some honey and apple juice
-cook for about two hours or so then remove from the foil and cook till done and sauce them

Ive grilled ribs just straight over the fire before but that was a dry rub rib...they are requesting bbq ribs...doing the best I can here

Some people are like slinkies, not any good until you toss em down the stairs.
