Introduction: Beer Simmered BBQ Ribs

These will be the easiest and best-tasting ribs you have ever had. Because they are cooked in the Crock-Pot first and then on the grill, the meat literally falls off the bone when you pick it up.

Supplies

Crock-Pot

BBQ Grill, charcoal provides the best taste but gas will work.

Basting Brush

Tongs

Pork Ribs

Beer, dealers choice

BBQ Sause, again, dealers choice

Honey

Spices (Pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder)

Step 1: Prep the Ribs and Start the Cooking.

Empty 4 cans of beer into the crockpot. Cut the slab of ribs into sections that fit into the Crock-Pot. If the Ribs are sticking out of the beer, add water until they are submerged. Now let then ribs simmer for 3-4 hours, or until the bones protrude slightly from the meat. The 5th beer is for you to enjoy while waiting on the ribs to cook. ;-)

Step 2: Prep the BBQ Sauce

You will need about 1.5 - 2 cups of BBQ sauce per rack of ribs. The BBQ sauce is a concoction of Sweat Baby Rays, Honey and my own mixture of Pepper, Salt, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder. The Honey adds to the taste and helps the BBQ sauce carmelize on the ribs. I add about 2 tablespoons of Honey for every cup of BBQ sauce.

Step 3: Pull the Ribs and Prep the Grill

The ribs are done when the bones are sticking out from the meat and it is nice and tender. The pictures show an example of this. Lather up both sides of the ribs and put them on a hot grill. Since the ribs are already cooked, we are only cooking on the BBQ sauce.

Step 4:

Flip the ribs frequently and reapply a hefty serving of BBQ sauce on every flip. This gives the ribs a sweet & crispy caramelized taste that puts the final touch on them. Once you flip them a couple of times and the BBQ sauce layer on enough for your liking, they are ready for enjoyment.

CAUTION: Meat may fall off bone due to being so tender! Don't let it fall into the grill.

    If you want to get the ribs out even faster, use an "instant pot" pressure cooker, will be done in 40 minutes and ready to put on the grill. Nothing wrong with using beer instead of water! Won't take as much beer, a pressure cooker cooks with steam, so just use a couple beers and put the ribs on a trivet up and out of the beer for best results. Should still get the beer taste from the beer steam.

    I have made these ribs for quite a few guests and I always run out before they leave.
