I decided to do these ribs in the oven... and unfortunately, they were not fall off the bone delicious. I am sure I did not back them slow enough or low enough.. but that's ok.. the flavor was still there and that made it at least blog worthy :) And I promise, the recipe is updated so that you will get the right tenderness if you decide to make this.

In a bowl, mix together the barbecue sauce, beer, and reserved rub mixture. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over it. Spray with non-stick spray. Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and brush with sauce mixture. Cover with foil and return to oven. Turn oven down to 200 degrees F and continue to bake for another 1.5 hours.
