1 rack of pork ribs, under 3 lbs.
1/4 c. paprika
2 T. salt
2 T. sugar
1 T. garlic powder
1 T. onion powder
1 T. pepper

Mix all the dry rub ingredients together. Rub on the ribs the night before cooking. To make it easy you can store the ribs in a plastic garbage bag overnight.

Cook on a smoker for 8 hours at 200 - 225. The best wood to use is pecan, apple or cherry. If you don't have a smoker, use a grill and a smoke box. Make sure not to place the ribs over a direct flame.

Baste every hour for the first 6 hours with a mixture of 3/4 beer and 1/4 olive oil mopping sauce.

For the final 2 hours, wrap tightly in tin foil with a generous mopping of the sauce. When done, the bone will slide out of the meat effortlessly.

Remember to always have a beer in hand while cooking. Men, the women will actually think you are doing something if you cook all day - while you're just drinking beer!
