Season the ribs with a mixture of chili powder, toasted cumin and beer. Wrap the ribs in foil and steam in a steamer for 1 hour or roast in a 250 degree F. oven in a pan with moisture for 2 hours until tender and moist.
Coat the ribs with barbecue sauce then slow grill over low heat face down. Coat the backside of the ribs with barbecue sauce. Heat for 5 to 10 minutes to caramelize the outside of the ribs and heat them through. Remove the ribs from the grill and cut the meat away from the bone between the ribs.
In a bowl whisk together the ketchup and steak sauce. Whisk in the beer, then the cayenne. Add the peanut butter a tablespoon at a time, whisking until the mixture is smooth. Add the chives and peppers and stir.
Grits Cake with Barbecue Riblets: Cut the grits cake mixture into the desired shape using a cookie cutter. Dredge them in flour and reshape. Saute the cakes in an olive oil and butter mixture until crispy on both sides. Place 3 slices of the rib meat over the grits cake and drizzle with extra barbecue sauce.
