Beer Brined BBQ Ribs

Pairs perfectly with our Detour India Session Ale!

Serves: 2 Cook Time: 2 ½ Hours (overnight brine)


  • 1 rack of pork side ribs, membrane removed
  • 2 cans of Detour
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • BBQ sauce, to finish


  1. Transfer the ribs to a large baking dish. Add the beer & cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate minimum overnight or up to two days.
  2. Preheat the oven to 300(f) degrees & line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small mixing bowl stir together the brown sugar, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder & cayenne pepper.
  3. Transfer the ribs to the prepared baking sheet & pat dry with a paper towel. Rub both sides generously with the dry rub mixture.
  4. Tent the baking sheet with foil & bake for 2 to 3 hours, until tender.
  5. When ready to serve, heat the grill to high heat. Brush the ribs with desired amount of barbecue sauce & grill for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until charred & heated throughout. Finish with additional barbecue sauce if desired.
