These savory, sweet and tangy ribs have never been less than a complete success the many times I've prepared them. My compliments range from "absolutely delicious" to the frequent "best ribs ever" followed by a request for my recipe, so here it is. They are fairly easy to prepare, but do however take a bit of time. Enjoy the ribs and don't be afraid to sip on a few of the ingredients.

  1. Cut each pork rack into 3 to 4 pieces.
  2. In a large pot, boil enough water to fully submerse ribs.
  3. Add the onion, garlic, ribs, and beer to the boiling water.
  4. Bring to a slow boil, cover and cook for 30-45 minutes.
  5. While the meat is cooking, combine BBQ sauce and whiskey in a bowl(mix to taste).
  6. Remove boiled ribs from pot and liberally coat with BBQ sauce and wrap tightly with aluminum foil.
  7. Put ribs in a roasting pan in a 200°F oven for 2 hours.
  8. While ribs are roasting, combine remaining ingredients to make the glaze.
  9. When the ribs are done roasting, remove from foil and grill over a low heat for about 15-20 minutes, turning 4-6 times and brushing with glaze after each turn.
