  1. We made these today and they are delicious! Smokey, salty, sweet and tangy, they it all the notes.

    We cooked a slab of five bones, cut the marinade, rub and glaze down by half and still have a good bit left over. I also cut way back on the salt in the rub, with the addition of bouillon in the glaze, I’m glad I did. We used a double dark German beer and it added so much flavor.
    Definitely making these again!

  2. I followed this recipe using a couple slabs of Non-Angus Beef Back Ribs from my local grocery store and they came out EXCELLENT. I used a couple chunks of Hickory and Apple for the smoke. I also cut the salt down to 1 part in the rub.

    If you are cooking 4-5 lbs of ribs, cut the recipe for the Honey-Beer glaze down by 1/4. I did 4 lbs of ribs and and had plenty leftover. I also substituted Spicy Brown mustard for the whole grain and I used a Killians Irish Red leftover from St Pattys Day for the beer.
