Coca-Cola BBQ Sauce for Ribs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by lil pilgrim

I love the sauce used on these BBQ'ed ribs, as does everyone that has tried them. I use the Country Style Pork Ribs and I prefer cooking them on the grill using indirect heat for hours, but I have used the oven as well. I mop the sauce on often and generously. I serve the sauce on-the-side as well. Recipe Origin - Jim Budros

It is good! I followed PaulaG's advice and use the Memphis Style Back Ribs cooking method and the Outback Steakhouse rub instead for my ribs (because I had a big batch of those) and it's great!
