• 2 slabs Baby Back Ribs (remove the casing – very important)
  • 1 can or bottle of cheap beer, like Coors Light or MGD
  • 1 – 2 bottles of BBQ Sauce (your favorite kind, I use Sweet Baby Ray’s)
  • 4 stalks celery – sliced
  • 1 onion – sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic – crushed
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. IMPORTANT STEP:  Remove the casing from the ribs
  3. Slice the celery & onions and crush the garlic
  4. Line a large pan with heavy duty foil, place cut celery, sliced onions and crushed garlic in pan
  5. Rub in the salt and pepper to both sides of ribs.  Place ribs in pan, bone side down
  6. Pour 2/3 can or bottle of beer in corner of the pan so you don’t wash off the seasoning on the meat
  7. Cover the pan with Heavy Duty Foil VERY TIGHT!
  8. Place in 400 degree preheated oven, immediately turn oven down to 325 degrees for 1 hour, then down to 275 degrees for another hour
  9. Remove from oven, remove foil cover and let cool for 1 hour
  10. Pour off all other liquid and ingredients, slather BBQ Sauce on both sides of cooled ribs and either return to a 400 degree oven for 15 – 20 minutes OR place on a hot BBQ Grill until browned and crisp
