I've cooked ribs in my BGE a couple of times and ribs are the one thing that I have cooked in there that I wasn't impressed with. I used the standard BGE indirect setup of a platesetter and drip pan. I like to cook ribs at 260-275, and at that temp the heat radiated from the platesetter was enough to make the edges of the ribs a little too dark. Also, At that time I flipped my ribs half way through the cook and with the meat side down the bark was so tough it was hard to cut through. Maybe 225 is a better temp in the BGE, but I have such good results with ribs in my FEC-100 that I didn't bother to try them in the Egg again.
