BBQ sauce made from cherry cola and cherry preserves and spicy brown mustard makes an excellent sauce for grilled ribs
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper. Wrap each rack in heavy-duty aluminum foil and close tightly. Place each foil pack on a separate baking sheet and bake for 2 hours or until meat is tender. Remove from foil packs and cut each rack in half. Brush with glaze. Place on a hot grill and cook about 5 minutes on each side. Brush with glaze with each turn. Cook until browned and glazed. Remove from heat. Allow to ribs to rest 15 minutes before cutting. Cut between each bone and serve with remaining glaze. Serves 6. (inspired by Bon Appetit or Gourmet years ago)
