Coca-Cola Ribs

Yield: 1 servings

4 lb Pork Ribs
3 c Coca-Cola or Dr. Pepper
3 c Ketchup
1 c Packed Dark Brown Sugar
6 tb Chili Powder
4 tb Ground black pepper
2 tb Dry mustard
1 tb Ground cinnamon

Transfer the ribs to a large non-reactive glass or ceramicdish pour 2 cups of
Coca-Cola or Dr. Pepper over them.Reserve the third cup of the soda for a
sauce to be madelater. Let the ribs marinate, tightly covered with
plasticwrap and refrigerated, overnight.About 6 1/2 hours before you plan to
serve the ribs, start afire in your smoke/cooker and begin heating a quantity
of coals.Then turn your attention to the sauce.Pour the remaining 1 cup of
soda into a blender or foodprocessor and measure in the catsup, brown sugar,
chili powder,pepper, dry mustard, and cinnamon. Mix until smooth and
wellblended. No need to cook this one, as least for now.Add some well-soaked
aromatic wood such as hickory or mesquiteto the glowing coals in your cooker.
Set a pan filled withhot water in place, and smoke cook the ribs, covered at
220 to240 degrees F. for about 3 hours.After this initial smoking, turn the
ribs, slather them withthe sauce, check the supply of wood and water in
theirrespective pans, and continue cooking for another 3 hours,this time
turning the ribs every 30 minutes and mopping themwith sauce each time
they're turned. By the end of the 3hours, they should have long since
reached the internaltemperature of 160 to 170 degrees recommended for

pork.After the last basting of the ribs, tote the remaining sauceinside and
simmer in a medium-size saucepan over low heat untilquite thick.Serve the
gloriously gooey sauce in dipping bowls with thefinished ribs.Source: Where
