My version of Cornicopia Resturant (in Cashiers, NC) & using a spice rub
2 Slabs of Ribs (I use Pork)
2 C. Sugar
1 C. Salt
Enough water to cover ribs totally.
Spice Rub:
Rob's Coke Marinated Steak Recipe (without the steak & onions & just using the spices as the rub): or see video recipe
4 T. Brown Sugar
2 T. Salt
2 T. Black Pepper
2 T. Onion Powder
1 T. Paprika
Mix all in a bowl.
Coca Cola BBQ Sauce:
2 Cans Coca Cola (don't use Diet - you're eating pork...JUST GO FOR IT)
3 C. Ketchup
1/2 C. Worcestershire Sauce
2 t. Liquid Smoke
1/2 C. A1 Steak Sauce
1/2 C. Brown Sugar, packed
1 t. each Onion, Powder, Garlic Powder & Black Pepper
The night before...remove membrane from back of ribs. Place in brine.

Brine: Mix sugar & salt together to disolve in water. Place ribs in (may add more water to cover). Let soak 1 hour or longer.

Prepare spice rub.

When done brining, pat dry & rub the rub all over front & back of ribs, double wrap in alluminum foil & let sit overnight.

Gas Grill (we have 4 burners): Preheat grill (all 4 burners) on high for 10 minutes for the grill to heat up. Remove ribs from foil. Once grill is heated, turn off 2 middle burners & turn 2 outer burners to low. Using indirect heat (the middle where the burners are off) ribs (bone side down) & grill for 1 1/2 hours (no turning the ribs - stays juicer that way).

As ribs are cooking, prepare Coca Cola BBQ Sauce (can do this day before as well to let the flavors marry more).

Coca Cola BBQ Sauce: Combine the ingredients in a heavy saucepan & gradually bring to a boil of medium heat. Reduce the heat slightly to obtain a gentle simmer. Simmer the sauce until reduced by 1/4, 6 - 8 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until using/serving. The sauce will keep for several months, refrigerated (can also freeze). (This sauce is also perfect for chicken, pork & even over steaks - instead of using steak sauce).

After 1 1/2 hours is up, put some BBQ Sauce on top of ribs (not slathered & no need for saucing the bottom of ribs), then turn over & cook additional 1/2 hour. Take off when done. When serving...slather with lots of Coca Cola BBQ Sauce & enjoy!

Easy and Perfect Everytime BBQ Ribs on Gas Grill
This has to be the easiest way to cook BBQ ribs on a gas grill. I've cooked them this way twice now and there perfect both times. Nice and juicy. I didn't try the BBQ sauce but will try it next time to see how it is.
