1. Place each rib slab, meat side up on a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil on a baking sheet.
  2. Combine salt, pepper and brown sugar and coat the ribs for a minimum of 2 hours (to overnight)
  3. Fold the foil around the ribs leaving one end open. Pour 3/4 cup of the beer in each packet and close the foil. Ensure the packets are sealed tightly yet loose around the ribs. Drink remaining beer.
  4. Put ribs into a preheated 250 degree oven for 3 hours.
  5. Meanwhile, combine last 6 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 seconds. This is your BBQ sauce.
  6. After the 3 hours of cooking, remove ribs from the oven and carefully open the foil.
  7. Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees.
  8. Pour out the rest of the cooking liquid from the rib pan and mix with the BBQ sauce.
  9. Brush the ribs generously on all sides and return to the oven for 20 minutes.
  10. Remove when done, and serve with the remaining BBQ sauce mixture.
