“This is a relatively unusual BBQ pork ribs recipe, whereby Coke is used as a seasoning as well as a rib marinade.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour enough Coca cola over the ribs. I use a vacuum sealer, to make it easier, but any way will do. Marinate for at least 24 hours. Remove the ribs from the marinade and apply more pork dry rub.
  2. Prepare your smoker and smoke the ribs at approx 225 degrees for 4 hours, basting hourly with Coke. Or, if just grilling, grill ribs over medium to low heat until a nice color develops. You can leaeve them on the grill, covered for approximately 4 hours until you reach your desired tenderness, or alternatively, wrap the ribs in foil and put in a 200 degree oven for about 4 hours or until desired tenderness is achieved.
  3. Meanwhile, put about 2 cups of Coca Cola in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce until you have about 1/2 cup or it is a syrupy consistency. Keep warm. Now it's money time. Remove the Coca Cola ribs, and brush on the syrup. Now, apply more rub to make a bbq pork ribs recipe that is sweet, and also savory. BBQ sauce is optional!
