- 6 lbs spareribs (loin back ribs)
- 2 cups beer
- 1 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Cut ribs into serving pieces, allowing about 3/4 lb. per serving.
- Brown ribs over hot coals or in heavy skillet on your kitchen range.
- Mix together remainder of ingredients. Pour over ribs and allow to stand for 24 hours.
- Remove ribs from sauce, retaining sauce for basting.
- Either thread ribs, accordian style, on a spit or lay them on the grill. Either way, a drip pan or foil should be placed on coals to prevent flare-ups from the fat drippings.
- Baste with barbecue sauce and cook long and slowly, about 1-1/2 hours.
- Ribs can also be marinated before cooking and the marinade used as a basting sauce.
- After ribs are cook, pour on remaining sauce and serve.
- To save time and insure moistness, parboil ribs before grilling, by cooking in boiling water for 5-10 minutes.
Finger lickin' to the elbows good...wonderful marinade. Made for PRMR.
I made this for 1/3 of the recipe for just the two of us, so I scaled back the recipe. Then my DH got a smoker for his Father's Day gift, so he smoked these marinated ribs. After they smoked, forever, I took the photo. Then we added BBQ sauce and put them on the grill for a little of carmelization and char. These were excellent!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 7.
