Ott's Recipes
Southern Style Beef Ribs


  • 2 or 3 slabs beef ribs
  • 2 quarts beer
  • Seasoning to taste (salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder)
  • 1 bottle Ott's Silver Dollar City Barbecue Sauce


Ribs must be started the night before you plan to barbecue. Cut slabs into easy-to-work portions. Season heavily with desired spices or seasonings. Place portions in large bowl or pan and cover with beer. Marinate overnight. When ready to cook, prepare grill as usual- preheat at least 20 minutes. Remove rib portions from beer and place on grill. Brown on both sides. Now for your secret to juicy ribs. With lukewarm water, sprinkle hot coals until steam rises from grill. Cool one side approximately 15 minutes, then turn meat. Turn ribs once more to steam but this time brush- before and after turning- with Ott's Silver Dollar City Barbecue Sauce. Apply enough sauce for rich brown appearance. Cook final 15 minutes and sit down to tart and juicy barbecue. Be sure to have plenty of napkins. (Some grills are equipped for steaming, if so, fill steamer pan 1/2 with water and place in grill under meat, but above coals).
