Fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs are tenderized with beer and drenched in a spicy sweet beer and barbecue sauce reduction.


  • 2-3lb babyback ribs
  • 12oz beer (I recommend something roasty like a nut brown)
  • 1 cup KC Masterpiece Southern Style barbecue sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar (tightly packed)
  • 1 lime (zested and juiced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch salt
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • pinch red pepper flakes


Step 1
In a large mixing bowl, combine the beer, barbecue sauce, garlic, brown sugar, lime juice and zest, onion powder, ground ginger, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Whisk until combined.
Step 2
Place the rack of ribs in a baking pan. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper, then pour the marinade on top.
Step 3
Flip so the meaty side is drenched in the marinade, cover with plastic wrap and let it marinate in the fridge for 4-8 hours.
Step 4
When you’re ready to cook, preheat the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 5
Take the ribs out of the marinade (setting the marinade aside) and encase them in foil, tightly sealed but with enough space to allow the air to circulate through.
Step 6
Bake at 275 for 2-2 + 1/2 hours, or until the meat falls off the bone.
Step 7
An hour before the ribs are done, pour the marinade into a saucepan, bring to a boil, then let simmer until reduced by half.
Step 8
Pull the ribs out of the oven, let rest for five minutes, then serve, drenching them with this sauce.
