1To prepare the basting sauce, combine 1 cup tomato sauce, 1 cup barbecue sauce, 1/4 cup cola, 2 Tbsp. honey, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar, ½ tsp. white pepper, 1/4 tsp. hot sauce, 1 minced garlic clove in a saucepan
2Let mixture come to a boil and then reduce and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, add 2 to 3 Tbsp. water. Remove the sauce from the heat and set it aside.
3Remove the membrane from the underside of the ribs. Trim off any loose fat or meat. Place the ribs in a large pot with cold water. Bring the water to a boil.
4Parboil the ribs for 5 minutes and remove them onto a baking sheet. You might need to do the ribs in batches since they can be so large.
5Mix the 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. paprika, 1 tsp. white pepper in a small bowl. This is the rib rub.
6After ribs are parboiled, apply the rib rub to each side of the ribs. Don't worry if some of the rub falls off. The right amount is the amount that sticks.
7Preheat the grill. Place the beef ribs on the grill and cook over medium-low heat.
8Rewarm the basting sauce. Once the ribs have reached 80 degrees, begin basting. Turn and baste the ribs with the basting sauce every 10 minutes, until finished cooking, about 1 ½ hours.
9Remove the ribs from the heat and serve immediately. Enjoy these ribs with typical barbecue sides such as coleslaw, baked beans, French fries, corn on the cob, or Mac n’ Cheese.
