Ribs 2011: Our recipe

Not a winner this year, but still definitely a great recipe. We'll be making these again soon!

Too bad we didn't have any PBR.  We used Pacifico, though, and it worked fine.

Recipe is for one rack of babyback pork ribs.


1/2 cup of Jim Beam
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 can of beer
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 cloves chopped garlic
2 teaspoons black pepper

1.  Heat the marinade ingredients in a large pot; dissolve sugar.  Allow the marinade to cool.
2.  Marinate ribs overnight in the refrigerator.  Remove from marinade, pat dry.
3.  Smoke the ribs at 225 degrees until the meat pulls away from the bone about a quarter of an inch.
4.  Make the sauce: put the marinade in a pan, bring to a boil.  Reduce it by half (this will take a while).  Add 1 cup tomato sauce, 1/4 cup cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons of molasses to the reduced marinade.
5.  Cut ribs and serve with sauce.
