BBQ Ribs Tender and Savory
- 1–2 full slabs of baby back ribs
- 1 bottle of good local craft beer
- 4–5 cloves of garlic smashed
- 1 small onion coarse sliced
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons Liquid Smoke, either mesquite or hickory
- Water to cover
- Your favorite BBQ sauce
In a large pan over medium high heat, add all of the above ingredients except the ribs and water, stir thoroughly. Place the ribs, cut into 3 or 4 rib sections if necessary, in the pan and put in enough water to completely cover the ribs. Place cover on the pan. Bring to a rapid boil and reduce heat to just at boiling. Boil for one hour. Drain.
Fire up your grill! Lather your favorite sauce on ribs and let set about 10 to 15 minutes covered. Lather both sides with additional sauce and place on the grill. Grill for about 4 to 5 minutes on a hot grill, lathering on additional sauce as necessary. Turn ribs over and repeat the process lathering on sauce on the already cooked side.
Remove from the grill to a platter and cover with aluminum foil, allowing them to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. This distributes the moisture throughout the ribs, making them tender and juicy. Serve with some additional sauce in a small bowl.
