Wow these were great ribs! They were a little sweet and almost falling off the bone (didn't fall off but the meat was oh so tender). My first thought, was these tasted like something that I might order at a great barbeque restaurant. I used about 4 pounds of country style ribs rather than baby-back ribs, Coke and Kraft Hickory Smoked Barbeque Sauce. I didn't start quite soon enough to cook at 250 degrees F. for 4 hours but increased the temperature to 325 degrees F. and cooked for 2 hours. Once the barbeque sauce was added I cooked for 1 hour at 325 degrees F. (removed the lid about 20 minutes prior to being done). This is now going to be my recipe of choice for making ribs in the future!

The ribs were fantastic!!!! The four hours simmering with the coke in the oven really removes a lot of fat from the ribs. I used about 4 lbs. Country Style ribs and when I removed them from baking dish so I could drain the coke, they were falling off the bone. Before I put them back in the dish, I added 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms, put the ribs and onions on top of the mushrooms and used Jack Daniels Sizzling Smokehouse Blend Grilling sauce which has a real bite to it...I loved the hot spicy flavor, but my husband said he would prefer a milder barbecue sauce next time, and there will be a next time!! Thanks for a great recipe.

I was a little disappointed with this recipe. It was very easy to prepare and the meat was very tender, but I didn't find the flavor anything special. I think I would have gotten the same results by simply boiling the ribs then covering them with bbq sauce and simmering them for awhile without all the extra ingredients. I thought because it had pop that they would be sweet and somewhat sticky, but they weren't at all what I had expected. Unfortunately, probably won't make them again.

This recipe is excellent! The meat was so tender and tasty. The barbecue sauce I used was not overpowering. I followed the temperature and time alterations that Caryn mentioned in her comment. It really helped cutting back 2 hours of cooking time, since I did not start cooking in the morning. I used Pepsi, honey garlic bottled barbecue sauce, and added green peppers to the onions. Next time I'm going to try a homemade barbecue sauce or different commercial sauce.

I’m afraid I have to agree with Jenn. I found these ribs to be very tender, but I found them lacking in flavor and I found three onions a bit much, slightly overpowering. I also didn’t like the idea that I had to be around mid-recipe to drain off the liquid. I think in part Kelly that you’re right, everyone has their own favorite rib recipe and I think that was the standard I was measuring these against. None-the-less they were relatively easy to prepare and as I said they were very tender.
