COMBINE sugar, coffee granules, salt, garlic powder, coriander, pepper and cocoa in coffee or spice grinder; cover. Process until smooth. Lightly rub ribs with oil. Sprinkle with rub mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere to the ribs. Let stand at room temperature for no more than 1 hour.
PREHEAT oven to 250° F. Pour beer into bottom of roasting pan. Cover pan with foil; bake for 4 to 5 hours (this will be long enough for the meat to be very tender, but not falling off the bones). Preheat grill. Grill ribs over medium flame, turning once, for 5 minutes.
Cook’s Tip: Double or triple the spice rub and store in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place. It will remain fresh for up to 1 month. Use 2 to 3 teaspoons rub per pound of meat. Rub is also great on pork chops, pork tenderloin, skinless chicken breasts and salmon fillets!

Excellent! Easy to make and they were delicious. The meat was so nice and tender and the rub was just enough so that you could still taste the meat and not overwhelmed by the spices. You could even taste the beer in them but just slightly. I gave recipe to bunch of family and friends. Will definetly make again!
Interesting new flavor for me.
This is an excellent rub for beef, chicken, fish as well. Add 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and chili powder to give it a bit of a kick.
I doubled the rub recipe, and added quite a lot of cayenne pepper--2 teaspoons--to half. This is my favorite rib recipe, and I'll continue to use the spicy variation. Grilling takes the sting out, leaving a dark mysterious flavor that was well-liked at our last family BBQ. It makes me hungry just to write about those delicious ribs! Recommended recipe, and one I'll keep.
The coffee adds a depth to the flavor, no one knew what it was, really good.
