READY IN: 3hrs 20mins




  • Fold each sheet of foil in half lengthwise.
  • You now have two double thick sheets measuring 18x18 inches.
  • Stack them on top of each other, folded sides on top, and triple fold the three cut edge sides together, crimping firmly, leaving the folded edge side open.
  • You now have a double thickness foil bag.
  • Put the foil bag on a large baking sheet with sides (in case of leaks) and fill with the ribs, being careful not to puncture the bag if the ribs are 'bone-in'.
  • Mix together the ketchup, beer, syrup, onion, garlic, Worcestershire, and hot sauce.
  • Pour into the bag with the ribs.
  • Triple fold and firmly crimp the top folded edges of the foil.
  • Put the bag, still on the baking sheet, into a 300 degree oven for 3 hours.
  • Remove from the oven, cut a corner of the foil bag, and drain the liquid contents into a sauce pan.
  • Crimp the cut edge and set the ribs aside, still sealed in the foil.
  • Bring the liquids to a boil and reduce to a glaze-like consistency (like b-b-que sauce).
  • While the sauce is reducing, preheat your oven broiler.
  • Place the ribs on a oil-sprayed broiler pan, being careful to keep as whole as possible, as they will be very tender.
  • Taste the sauce and add more hot sauce if you want more spiciness.
  • Brush the ribs generously with the sauce and broil close to the heat until the sauce starts to bubble and caramelize (about 1-2 mins.).
  • Turn the ribs, and repeat.
  • If you want a thicker coating, do this brush-and-broil process one more time per side.
  • (I usually do.) Serve with any extra sauce to pour over.
  • NOTE: If you don't have or can't find the dark maple syrup, dark corn syrup is a good substitute.
