Tried this yesterday. And it was DELICIOUS! I did not have 4 pounds of ribs so I had to make some adjustments. 1 pound ribs, 1 medium onion, salt & pepper to taste, 1 can of Pepsi and just enough BBQ sauce to coat. I used a Hickory flavor BBQ sauce. I also put the BBQ coated ribs back in the oven for 15 minutes after draining off the Pepsi just so I was not serving the ribs with room temp BBQ sauce. I think it helped to thicken the sauce some and make it stick to the ribs better. My husband could not stop complimenting them. Which in our house is a pretty big deal! I recommend using more onion than called for (which I did). Other than that it is a perfect recipe. :)

I agree, don't use diet cola because you need the sugar in this. Also, use a good bbq sauce not a cheap one because the ribs will get most their flavor from the sauce and you want a good one. I wouldn't use a sweet one either unless you like sweet ribs becaue the cola will add sweetness. Go for smoky or spicy.

Awesome. Just don't use diet cola as you need the sugar to make this work. I used a smoky bbq sauce.
