House Barbecue Sauce:


  1. For the marinade: In a large bowl, mix 1 cup water, the liquid smoke, beer, chile flakes, sea salt, Italian seasoning, pepper and bay leaves. Place the ribs in a hotel pan and pour the marinade over. Marinate the ribs overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Bake the ribs in the oven, semi-slow and low, for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
  3. Pull out the ribs, and rest them for 1 hour, reserving any liquids at the bottom of the pan.
  4. For the sauce: In a large bowl mix the au jus from the baked ribs, the ketchup, honey, cayenne, horseradish, sugar, smoke and some salt and pepper.
  5. Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F. To serve, grill to char the ribs, 5 to 8 minutes. Add on some of the barbecue sauce, and serve.

Cook’s Note

Loulou's Griddle in the Middle uses Black Prince Porter, a delicious local beer, for the marinade.
