Ribs

  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Sauce

  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 can (12 oz) cherry cola carbonated beverage
  • 1/4 cup cherry preserves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons buffalo wing hot sauce or other hot sauce

Directions

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Cut ribs into serving-size sections. Rub ribs with seasoned salt, garlic-pepper blend and ginger. Place ribs in ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, overlapping slightly. Bake uncovered about 1 hour 30 minutes or until tender.

    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, mix sauce ingredients. 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 gas or charcoal grill. Place ribs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 to 15 minutes, turning and brushing occasionally with sauce to glaze.
  • 4
    Heat remaining sauce to boiling; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve sauce with ribs.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Precooking the ribs in the oven shortens the grilling time, helps tenderize the meat and removes some of the fat.
  • tip 2
    You can use regular cola instead of the cherry cola, if you like.
