Welcome to SMF glad you joined us. You can place them directly on the grates personally the only time I use rib racks is if I'm trying to smoke more than will lay on the racks.

Welcome to SMF and like Piney said, I too only use a rack if I cant fit them on on the grates

Here's a good method for Spare Ribs if your doing Baby Backs use 2-2-1

 If you are fairly new to smoking may I also suggest signing up for Jeff's 5 Day Ecourse it's free and has some great info in it here's a link

First off Welcome to SMF there Lester. Now I wouldn't recommend using a rack unless you don't have the room in your smoker. Then I would use the recipe that Jerry (pineywoods) gave you too.

welcome to the forum, and to answer your question you can do it either way, i have tried it both ways and perfer the right on the grate, and yes when i did both the method for me was the same 2 hours on the grate flipping every 30 with apple juice sprayed on, and them wrapped for an 1hour and a half in foil and then 30 more wrapped with bbbq sauce
