This post is a little late but better late than never. We celebrated Memorial Day last Monday with a BBQ. It was delicious! We had Dr Pepper ribs, strawberry banana smoothies, watermelon, and broccoli salad.
The Dr Pepper ribs were so tender and juicy. They came out perfect. Here's the method:
Dr Pepper Ribs
12 oz can Dr Pepper
1 full rack of ribs (about 2.5 lbs)
Montreal steak seasoning
hot sauce of your choice
Kraft Honey BBQ Sauce
Sprinkle Montreal seasoning on ribs. Divide the ribs into 2 half racks. Add ribs to a baking pan that is at least 2" deep. Add 2 tsp of hot sauce to the ribs (more or less to taste). Pour 1 can of Dr Pepper over the ribs. Marinate for 1 hour. Start a fire in the grill with charcoal. Place the ribs in foil packets after they marinate. Add ice cubes to the foil packets (about 10 ice cubes). Place the foil packets over the grill and cook for 1 hour. Turn the packets over and cook for 1 more hour. Take the ribs out of the foil and place directly on the grill. Cover the ribs with BBQ sauce. Grill for 10 minutes. Turn the ribs over and coat with another layer of BBQ sauce. Grill of 10 more minutes. Remove from the grill. Let rest for about 10 minutes and serve.
