1 12-ounce bottle dark beer
1 18-ounce bottle good-quality barbecue
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons (packed) golden brown sugar
1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
Preheat oven to 400F. Whisk chili powder, paprika,
cumin, salt, and
pepper in small bowl to blend. Rub spice mixture all over ribs. Place
ribs in heavy large roasting pan.
Boil beer in medium saucepan until reduced to 1 cup, about 5
minutes. Pour beer around ribs. Cover pan tightly with foil. Bake
ribs until fork-tender, about 1 hour 30 minutes.
Combine barbecue sauce, 1/2 cup water, brown sugar, and espresso
powder in heavy medium saucepan. Simmer until flavors blend and sauce
thickens slightly, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. (Ribs and
barbecue sauce can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cool slightly, then cover
separately and refrigerate.)
Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Brush ribs with some barbecue sauce.
Grill ribs just until heated through, about 3 minutes per side.
Transfer ribs to platter. Bring remaining sauce to simmer. Brush ribs
with more barbecue sauce. Serve ribs, passing remaining barbecue
