Dinner This Evening:

Cola Barbecued Ribs
3 1/2 lb pork spareribs or loin back ribs

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon hickory smoked salt(I used Head Country Seasoning) A Staple in our home

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup cola

1 3/4 cups barbecue sauce(We prefer Head Country by the gallon)

Step 1. Spray 4-5 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Trime excess fat and remove membranes from ribs(not sure if mine had this I didnt do it) In a small bowl mix brown sugar, hickory smoked salt and pepper and rub into ribs. Cut ribs into 2-3 rib portions (I did this before the rub all the night before) Place ribs into cooker and pour cola around.
***I doubled all of this because we like seasoning***

Step 2 Cover; cook on LOW heat setting 8-9 hours

Step 3 removed ribs from cooker; place in shallow baking pan. Drain liquid from cooker and discard. Brush both sides of ribs with Barbecue sauce. Return ribs to cooker. Pour any remaining sauce over ribs.

Step 4 Cover; cook on LOW heat setting for about an hour longer or until ribs are glazed and sauce is desired consistency. (While this is happening I will be making the red potatoes :)
