BBQ Sauce Recipe
- In a pan, heat oil, add onion and cook until soft
- pour in the broth, cola, cider vinegar, corn syrup, molasses and ketchup
- Add tomato paste, garlic powder, brown mustard and hot sauce
- Stir to mix and allow to cook for about an hour on a low simmer to thicken to your liking.
- Tie the ribs, membrane facing inward and intact, tie them with the string into a circle. DO NOT remove the membrane as this helps keep the ribs upright and together.
- Rub them over with olive oil and apply the seasoning.
- Place the ribs end on into a heavy pan, we used a black iron pan, add a splash of moisture to the pan, not too much, you don’t want it to boil the ribs.
- Place them on indirect heat in a preheated grill or oven at 250~275f for the first two hours.
- Once the first two hours have passed, baste the ribs with a good dose of the St Louis BBQ sauce and cover with heavy duty aluminum foil for the next stage of the cook which will be about another two hours.
- add more basting sauce and every 15-20 min and replace the foil cover to seal in that moisture you want in the last stage of the cook to infuse the smoky flavors and seasonings with the pork.
