Start to render the bacon in a heavy bottom pan over medium heat, when it’s well browned add the onion and saute til caramelized. Add the beans and seasonings, reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes.
Remove venison ribs from the boil, season well with Low Down & Dirty then place over the fire in a medium heat zone to brown up both sides and get some good smoke flavor on them.
Discard the rib boil, place the pot back over the fire in the hottest spot. Add the whiskey and burn off the alcohol and allow it to reduce to a syrup then add the honey and Stone House Memphis BBQ Sauce and remove to medium heat area and simmer gently 15 minutes.
Drain off the orange juice from the sprouts, place sprouts over the fire and cook both sides till crispy and delicious, about 10 minutes.
Brush the glaze liberally on the ribs and allow the heat to caramelize it and make it extra sticky.
Bring it all together on a big platter to share then dig in!
