Smoked Bourbon Spareribs Have Unique Flavor

Smoked Ribs Kissed With The Flavor of Jim Beam Bourbon

Jim Beam flavors these smoked bourbon spareribs with a down home backwoods goodness. The earthy taste of the Jim Beam marinade also creates a fine sauce for dippin'.


Bourbon Rib Marinade Recipe


To make the marinade, combine...

  • One-half cup of Jim Beam
  • One-half cup brown sugar
  • One can of beer
  • Two tablespoons soy sauce
  • Two tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • One tablespoon chopped garlic
  • One teaspoon black pepper

Heat the marinade ingredients in a saucepan, bringing to a boil and dissolving the sugar completely. Allow to cool.

Marinate a whole spare rib slab overnight in the Jim Beam juice. Remove the slab from the marinade and allow it to drain. Pat dry before smoking at 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Hickory is the wood of choice for smoke with this recipe.

Again, put the marinade in a saucepan and bring to a boil, reducing by half. Add one cup of tomato sauce, one quarter cup of cider vinegar, and two tablespoons of molasses and continue to simmer until thickened. Serve with your smoked, bourbon marinated ribs.
