2 hours in the foil is a lot. Try cooking them without wrapping. I sell them (short ribs) every week and how I do them is:

Trim off the hard fat, make some "X" marks on the membrane side, and season those puppies up. Cook them at 300-325 (or lower if you want) and don't wrap. You'll know when they are done when they probe resistance. No wrapping will get you the great bark and they still get tender.
