1 or 2 Racks (3.5 lbs each) well-trimmed pork spareribs
Cherry Cola Glaze
Purchased BBQ Sauces
A Day Ahead:|
Make the Cherry Cola Glaze
Position racks in top and bottom thirds of oven and preheat to 325o.
Cut the ribs in half. Sprinkle each half with salt and pepper and wrap each half rib rack tightly in foil, enclosing completely.
Bake until ribs are very tender, switching positions of baking sheets halfway through baking, about 2.5 hours total.
Cool ribs slightly in foil and pour off any fat from foil packets. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Keep covered in foil packets and refrigerate. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour before continuing.)
The Next Day:
Preheat oven to 325o.
Cut ribs between bones into individual or pairs of ribs.
Add ribs to bowl with glaze/sauces and toss to coat.
Bake ribs on foil loosley covered with additional foil, until brown and glazed, about an hour, total.
2017-09-01: The ribs were made with the Cherry Cola Glaze and then split into two recipes from the original.|
2017-07-28: the glaze was thinner, but the ribs were still excellent. Next time we will coat some of the ribs with different sauces.
2017-05-29: WOW. The glaze was a little too thick for the single rack, but the ribs were excellent. Served with shoe string potatoes and Sister Cities Slaw.
