'elf, I've tried smoking on the gas grill and the problem is that I cannot keep the heat low enough. With olny one burner on the lowest setting and the lid cracked open, the temp is still over 300 F.

Thanks for the thoughts and suggestions, ladies.
I have had similar trouble keeping a low temp on a gas grill too. Esp the one I own, it's ruthlessly hot at all times.

Check into a Smokin Tex electric smoker. I equate them to the "crock pot" of smokers. My boss will go home at lunch to let her dog out and she place 1-2 chickens in the smoker, sets the temp and then comes back to work. When she gets home a 6:30-7:00 her dinners ready and delicious!

Thanks for the tip but I can't keep a low enough temperature in my grill to do this, even at the lowest setting on one burner.

Thanks, Renee, I'll check it out.

Throw some wood chips in there anyway - before my gas grill started collecting dust I used to do the same (little steel wood chip box) and it worked fine.

Andy, the grill will do all of the cooking, but throwing a wood pouch or one of those smoker boxes will add smoke flavor....without bothering your neighbors.

Soak some chips in beer or water for 30-60 minutes, drain and place in a foil pouch or smoke box. Place on top of a burner (off to the side), when you start to see smoke, then add the meat.

Have some chips in reserve when the smoke diminishes.

Before I bought my smoker, I picked up one of those boxes from Lowes for like $7 and a bag of chips for $4.

I like to cook my ribs at about 225-250F. My grill cannot maintain a temperature that low. With one burner on the lowest setting and the lid propped open a bit, the temp under the cover is over 300F. I realize I can cook ribs at that temperature but prefer not to.

You can cook them exactly how you did in the OP.

300 seems pretty high. Have you double checked the guage?
