DIRECTIONS

  • Rub Dry Rub all over ribs. Place in a glass baking dish; cover and refrigerate several hours or, even better, overnight.
  • Stir together ketchup, beer (or water), vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, brown sugar (add more, if you like your sauce sweeter), oregano, basil, thyme, and pepper in a medium-size bowl.
  • Transfer ribs to a 5-quart Dutch oven. Reserve 1 cup sauce for basting later; pour remainder over ribs. Cover pot and cook the ribs over low heat for about 45 minutes or until ribs are tender. (Ribs may be prepared up to a day ahead and refrigerated.).
  • Prepare grill or heat broiler. Remove ribs from sauce; discard sauce. Spread ribs with half the reserved sauce.
  • Cook ribs over medium coals (or medium direct heat on a gas grill) or broil until crispy and browned, about 5 minutes. Turn ribs over. Spread with remaining sauce. Cook 5 minutes more.
  • DRY RUB for COUNTRY-STYLE RIBS: Combine 2 tablespoons salt, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons dried lemon peel (found in the spice section of your supermarket), 3 tablespoons black pepper, and 1 tablespoon paprika in a small bowl. Store unused dry rub in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
