BBQ Ribs recipe, taken from Texas Barbeques. Use your fingers and a lot of napkins!
BBQ Beef Short Ribs
5 pounds beef chuck short ribs
24 ounces beer
Spicy BBQ Sauce (recipe follows), or your favorite bottled sauce.
Trim any excess fat from ribs. Place ribs in a Dutch oven or large cooking pot. Add beer to cover ribs. Bring to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for about 2 hours or until fork-tender.
Prepare outdoor grill to medium heat. Place ribs on grill; brush with half of reserved Spicy Barbecue Sauce for basting. Grill, covered, turning often and brushing with remaining basting sauce, for 15 minutes or until slightly crispy on the outside.
Heat reserved Spicy Barbecue Sauce for dipping. Serve with ribs.

1-teaspoon onion powder
1/2-teaspoon celery seed
1/2-teaspoon liquid hot pepper
