Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2To prepare the basting sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan.
Step 3Let the mixture come to a boil and then reduce and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of water. Remove the sauce from the heat and set it aside.
Step 4If you are using frozen ribs, they should be thawed. Remove the membrane from the underside of the ribs. Trim off any loose fat or meat.
Step 5Place the ribs in a large pot with cold water. Bring the water to a boil. Parboil the ribs for 5 minutes and remove them onto a baking sheet. You might need to do the ribs in batches if they are too large for the pot.
Step 6For the rub, mix the 1/3 cup brown sugar, salt, paprika, and 1 teaspoon white pepper in a small bowl.
Step 7After ribs are parboiled, apply the rib rub to each side of the ribs. Don't worry if some of the rub falls off.
Step 8Preheat the grill. Place the beef ribs on the grill and cook over medium-low heat.
Step 9Rewarm the basting sauce. Once the ribs have reached 165 F, begin basting. Turn and baste the ribs with the basting sauce every 10 minutes, until finished cooking, about 1 1/2 hours total.
Step 10Remove the ribs from the heat and serve immediately.
