      After smoking, increase the grill temperature to 325 degrees F. Once the grill comes to temperature, continue to cook the pork. At the same time, arrange the chorizo and bacon directly on the grill grate. After 25 to 30 minutes, transfer all the meat to a cutting board. Remove any bones from the pork ribs and chop into bite-size pieces. Slice the chorizo into 1/4-inch slices and dice the bacon.

      Put all the meat into a large Dutch oven. Add the garlic, onion, jalapeños, pinto beans, tomatoes, beer, cumin and a pinch of oregano. Stir to combine. If the mixture seems a little dry, add chicken broth or water 1 cup at a time. Cover the Dutch oven and return to the grill.
    • 6

      Bake the beans for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally. If the beans seem too soupy remove the lid. If they seem dry, stir in a little chicken broth or water.
