Unlike the housemade, signature Cherry Coke Barbecue Sauce at the popular Southern restaurant chain CinéBistro, this recipe is based off a bottled barbecue sauce, which makes it very easy to make at home. Always use a high-quality bottled sauce.

Ingredients

For the sauce

  • 1/3 Cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 Cup cola, or cherry cola
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 1/2 Tablespoons chipotle in adobo
  • 1 Teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 2 Cups bottled barbecue sauce, your favorite or a very high-quality brand

For the ribs

  • 2 racks St. Louis-style spareribs
  • 2 Cups "smoke dunk," which is 1/2 water and 1/2 liquid smoke
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon black pepper

Directions

For the sauce

Add the cherries, coke, juices, and chipotle to a pot. Reduce the liquid by 2/3. Add the liquid smoke and the prepared barbecue sauce. Blend the mixture with an immersion blend or transfer to a food processor to blend. Simmer for 20 minutes after blended. 

 

For the ribs

Dip the pork racks into the liquid smoke mixture. Combine salt and pepper and sprinkle evenly over the ribs. Place the racks on a sheet pan without overlapping, and wrap tightly in foil. Refrigerate overnight to marinate.

The following day, remove from the refrigerator an hour before cooking and bring to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Cook for about 1 hour and 45 minutes (inside the foil.) Test by lifting a rib from the center of the rack. It should pull apart easily.

Finish cooking on the grill, or under the broiler, basting the racks with the cherry cola barbecue sauce. 

Barbecue Shopping Tip

To add lots of flavor without a whole lot of fuss, try purchasing some steak seasoning.

Barbecue Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
