Fall off the Bone Ribs 1 Picture


  • Country Style Ribs (about 8)
  • Beer or Apple Juice (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • Pork Dry Rub or another Seasoning of choice, to taste
  • 1 - 8 oz bottle barbecue sauce
  • 2 - tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 - cup brown sugar
  • Foil



Step 1

Start with a dry rub of your choice. If you don't have a dry rub just use a good seasoning. Rub a good amount on each of the ribs.

I just sprinkle it all over the ribs and then rub it in. Flip over the ribs and do the same on the other side.

Sprinkle on a bit of brown sugar. Add the ribs to a large zip lock bag or place in plastic container.

Place in the refrigerator for a couple hours. Take a broiler pan and fill the bottom section of the broiler pan about half full of beer or apple juice (about 1 1/2 cups).

On the top section (the part with the slits) lay out the ribs. You can add a little sauce or save it for the end. Cover the pan with foil and fold edges under to seal in the steam as they cook.

Place in a 300 degree oven for 2 ½ to 3 hours. DO NOT OPEN THE FOIL UNTIL THE TIME IS UP. Remove foil carefully as the steam will be hot.

Now all the grease is down in the bottom of the pan with the beer or apple juice, the ribs are completely cooked and tender.

All you need to do is finish them up on the grill or under the broiler with sauce with your favorite BBQ sauce.

In a separate bowl add the honey and brown sugar to the barbecue sauce. Mix well and slather all over the ribs.

You can either place ribs on grill and coat with you favorite sauce or finish them up under you stoves broiler. If grilling, grill ribs on each side just a few minutes until crispy.

For broiler, dump out about 3/4 of the liquid in the bottom of the broiler pan . The add barbecue sauce on the ribs and broil for a few minutes on each side.

Watch closely because the sugar in the BBQ sauce will burn quickly. Remove from oven cool a bit and serve.
