Andrew S. from Depew

Andrew's recipe is for Sweet and spicy fall off the bone pilsner ribs! Check out his ingrediens/steps below!


  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 3 1/2 pounds (about 2 slabs) baby back ribs
  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle beer, I like a Pilsner (budlight Orange works well, or a citrus IPA) but for different flavors try other types of beers.
  • 3-4 TBSP Country Sweet Hot Cooking sauce
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Country Sweet BBQ sauce for Grill (or more to taste).

Note: This Recipe can be made in oven first step and then grilled, or completely on Grill (indirect then direct grilling). Also, remember to remove the thing Papery membrane from bone side of Ribs w a Butter knife prior to cooking.

  1. If using oven (great for preparing ahead of tailgate parties); Preheat oven to 350°. Spread onion slices evenly on a rimmed baking sheet, and place ribs, bone side down, on top. Pour beer over ribs, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Then lightly spread Country Sweet Hot Cooking sauce over ribs, and swish into the beer slightly. Cover tightly with foil and Bake 2.5 hrs. *** I like to use a disposable foil cake pan for this. If using a grill; rather than an oven; light one side of grill for indirect cooking, Place covered pan on Non lit side and Close lid, 2.5-3 hrs; (Be sure to monitor Grill temp to keep between 350 and 375.
  2. Remove from Pan; brush both sides of ribs with Country Sweet BBQ sauce and place on lit side of Grill; Grill over Medium heat, meat side down, 10 to 15 minutes or until slightly charred and crispy, basting several times with sauce. Flip ribs over, and baste cooked side liberally. Close grill lid, and cook 10 to 15 minutes more, basting often. Remove from heat; let rest 10 minutes. Cut individual ribs apart, and serve warm. Ribs will be tender and fall from bone with minimal effort; Enjoy!
