It’s the last hurrah for summer BBQs and cookouts, and this is the perfect recipe to finish off the season. If you’re planning on preparing this, make sure that you start the prep work ahead of time, as the ribs need time to soak in the mixture of beer and spices. Once the grill is nice and warmed up, you’ll mix together beer, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup, brown sugar, liquid smoke, margarine, apple cider vinegar and honey mustard for a really tasty marinade. Cover the ribs with the mixture and grill for 1.5 to 2 hours.
