  • 1
    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.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    Heat remaining barbecue sauce mixture to boiling; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve sauce with ribs.

Expert Tips

  • 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.
