Easy Country Style Spare Ribs

1 cup catsup
1 cup water
1 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 medium sized onion, sliced
1 large lemon, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
2 tbsp butter or margarine
4 lbs lean country style spareribs
Salt and pepper

In a 4-quart kettle (that can be used on a barbecue grill), combine catsup, water, sherry, Worcestershire sauce, onion, garlic, lemon and butter. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Arrange ribs, fat side up, on lightly greased grill 4-6 " above a solid bed of low-glowing coals. Baste lightly with sauce. Cook, turning occasionally for 1 hr - 1 hr 20 minutes, or until meat near bone is no longer pink. Every 1/2 hour add 5-6 briquettes to fire, spacing them evenly to maintain a constant temperature. Re-heat remaining BBQ sauce by placing kettle on grill. As ribs cook, remove them from grill; cut into serving size pieces, and place in kettle. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes longer. Spoon sauce over pieces to serve. Season with salt and pepper.
