Overnight beer soak for ribs

Post by painer » November 29th, 2012, 3:02 pm

Simple as it gets if you like a little beer flavoring in your ribs.

Get a cooler large enough to hold however many slabs youre cooking.

CLEAN the cooler and disinfect.

Choose a hearty, FATTY beer (nothing light) to use as a marinade. Cheap beers like milwaukees best work great!

It will take between 6 and 12 12 oz beers to cover your ribs, depending on how tight they pack in the cooler.

Pour a beer or two in the bottom of the cooler then add the ribs

Pour beer over them until the ribs are covered.

Lay some ice (in bag) over the product to keep it cool.

This is an easy marinade because changing beers can change flavor, and beer is just an excellent marinade.

You can also alternate soak times to please yourself, the longer the soak the stronger the flavor.

I know this is really simple, but hey, the forum needed some marinades! LOL :beer:

Sorry just have to say this: You think Milwaukees best is a hearty beer? I drink plenty of it, but that's what I keep around when all my beer drinking neighbours stop by, I keep my homebrew and other real beer for myself and friends that like real beer. ;) Just kidding with ya, might give it a try sometime. but I agree with maccas66, would rather use the beer directly from the glass to my stomach. :beer:

Lol I love beer myself, so it is hard to see it go down the drain. However, just think you get beer in the food and the drink!

And yes, milwaukees isnt a super hearty beer compared to a homebrew or beefy ale, but im sure as hell not about to use something that expensive on my meat lol!

The only problem I see is, it would take me two cases of a hearty beer (not Beast :D ) to do this. You know 1 for the ribs, two for me. On the upside by the time I sober up, the ribs will be marinated and ready for some smoke. :beer:


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.
