Lick-your-fingers good! Baby back ribs are a fantastic summertime supper.
to 6 lb pork baby back ribs
teaspoon seasoned salt
teaspoon garlic pepper blend
teaspoon ground ginger
cup barbecue sauce
can (12 oz) cherry cola
cup cherry preserves
teaspoon ground mustard
to 2 teaspoons buffalo wing hot sauce or other hot sauce
Heat oven to 350°F. Cut ribs into serving-size sections. Rub ribs with seasoned salt, garlic pepper and ginger. Place ribs in 15x10x1-inch pan, overlapping slightly. Bake uncovered about 1 hour 30 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, mix barbecue sauce, cola, preserves, mustard and buffalo wing sauce. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer uncovered 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until flavors are blended and sauce is slightly thickened.
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Cover and grill ribs over medium heat 10 to 15 minutes, turning and brushing occasionally with barbecue sauce mixture to glaze.
Heat remaining barbecue sauce mixture to boiling; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve sauce with ribs.
Precooking the ribs in the oven or microwave shortens the grilling time, helps tenderize the meat and removes some of the fat.
You can use regular cola instead of the cherry cola if you like.
