Barbeque Spare Ribs with Cherry Cola

Web ClubHusband


Serves 4 (personally I would double it for four of my family)

4 pounds pork spare ribs

1 cup catsup

1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper

1/8 teaspoon White Pepper ( double black pepper if you don't have white)

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1 1/2 cups cherry cola soft drink - you can substitute other colas but never use diet

1/4 cup vinegar

2 teaspoons paprika

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1 medium onion, finely chopped

Cut spare ribs into two bone servings and place on grill over grey-white coals. If using gas grill use the lowest setting possible.  Preferably center of grill while only lighting outside burners.  .Slowly cook ribs 1 to 1 1/4 hours, turning often. If the barbeque ribs are cooking to quickly on the gas grill you might need to place  ribs in shallow baking pan  to keep from burning the outside. Or wrap in foil, but watch for fat run off catching on fire.
If using a two burner grill another trick is to place all the  pork ribs on one side of grill and turn off flame to that side. If you do this allow barbeque ribs another 15 minutes to cook.   Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan and simmer 10-15 minutes or until barbecue sauce begins to thicken. Brush ribs generously with sauce and continue to cook, about 30 minutes, basting with barbecue sauce and turning often.
