Cherry Coke Barbecue Ribs

Cherry Coke Barbecue Ribs
1 slab baby back ribs
Cherry Coke to cover
Cherry Juice
Salt and pepper
1 raw onion, quartered
Cinnamon sticks
1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 lime, sliced
Barbecue sauce, for basting
Simmer the beef ribs in the Cherry Coke and 1 or 2 onion quarters in a
large pot over medium heat for about a half hour.
Meanwhile, prepare the marinade by warming the cherry juice in a large
saucepan over medium-high heat. Add salt, pepper, remaining onion
quarters, cinnamon, orange, lemons and limes and about 1/2 liter of
Cherry Coke. Heat the marinade until near to the boiling point.
Refrigerate to marinate the parboiled beef ribs for about 2 hours prior
to grilling.
Grill slowly over a low flame or coals for about an hour until done,
turning and basting with leftover marinade that has been reheated to
boiling or with your choice of BBQ Sauce. The grilling time of 2 or 3
hours is greatly reduced because the beef ribs were partially cooked
during the parboiling and marinating process. Enjoy.
