Matt opted for a rack of ribs with a tasty Steam Whistle BBQ sauce, which may have had a lot of steps, but it was totally worth the work.

  • 1 rack pork back ribs or St. Louis cut side ribs
  • 1 can Steam Whistle Pilsner tall can
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 4 oz maple syrup divided
  • 2 oz ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 oz molasses


  • Place the ribs in a large container and soak the ribs in the Steam Whistle beer for at least one hour. Mix the salt, pepper and paprika together. Remove the ribs from the beer bath and rub the seasoning mixture all over the meaty side of the ribs. Brush the ribs with 2 oz of maple syrup.
  • Preheat your BBQ to 450 F and sear the ribs on high heat (open lid) for 6 minutes meat side down and then flip and grill for another 4 minutes. Remove the ribs off the grill and turn one side of the BBQ off to bring down the internal temperature to 300 F. Make a layering of tinfoil, butcher paper and parchment paper. Spread out the brown sugar on the parchment, then the ketchup, molasses, maple syrup and a little more beer. Tent wrap the ribs and place on indirect heat on your BBQ for about 2 hours. When you remove let the ribs rest for about 15 minutes, then unwrap your ribs, cut into twos and enjoy!
