If you wish you can pre steam the ribs in the oven for 30 minutes and cut down the BBQ time. Put the ribs on a cookie sheet add 1 cup of beef broth, seal with tin foil and put in a 325°F oven. Thee BBQ time will now be about 30 minutes and I find the ribs are more tender. Adjust the seasoning to your liking. Serve with salads and baked on the BBQ potatoes

No so thrilled with the marinade...I guess my tomato sauce wasn't right, it just didn't seem to work with the beer, was a strange flavour. We doctored it up with other ingredients and got it tasting good, but as is it wasn't working for me. I followed the 'steaming' directions which was great and saved me lots of hassle pre-boiling.

Your Sauce recipe is outstanding. The ribs turned out pretty good due to the fact I was watching them on the grill every 10 minutes, and that was on LOW heat. When you say place ribs over medium heat? Does that mean meat side down? Or bone side down??? Need to be more specific on the actual grilling directions. Other than that these ribs are great.

This is an awesome recipe! I tripled it and put the ribs in a roaster with the broth as suggested, for 30 mins. Then I marinated all afternoon, and we BBQd them with extra BBQ sauce, though I liked the marinade on its onw. I concur that it's great on chicken, too! Really yummy, really easy... my crew was more than satisfied!
