Recipe for Ribs "N Beer. Fabulous barbecue -- ribs are marinated in beer then cooked long over low heat.


  • 1 rack spare ribs (3 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 quart beer
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard


  1. Combine the beef, sugar, vinegar, and spices in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, remove from the heat, and let cool. Place the ribs in a large shallow, non-aluminum roasting pan. Pour marinade over ribs.
  2. Turn the ribs several times while they marinate, about 24 hours, in the refrigerator. Drain the ribs, reserving the marinade.
  3. Arrange the ribs on the grill and smoke 5 to 6 hours, until meat is tender, basting with reheated marinade every 30 minutes.
